A couple of questions.

1. Why do people go to facebook? It appears to be useless and evil.

2. Can I post in the poll even if I'm not Canadian? And if not, shouldn't the thread by rights be locked?

11 and 12 are correct either way, I'd say.

I think everyone's got it, except for 13. I think the answer to 13 is b), you leave out the definite article. At least that's how I hear it stated in the Canadian media all the time. When I say it that way myself, it just feels weird and awkward, though.
