Have you drawn the Canada’s Luckiest Student winner?

Yes! But their identity is still a mystery. Their name is written down on a slip of paper, locked in a secure underground vault, guarded by an elite clan of hardened samurai and their trained fox sidekicks. Okay, but yes, the winner was drawn.

Not yet. Keep checking this article for hints to their identity.
