Maclean's Quiz! 'Canada's Smartest Person' is back!

This week he scored 93%—a personal best. Can you beat that?


Welcome back to the Maclean’s Quiz, a weekly diversion designed to test your trivia skills. Good luck, and remember: no Internet assistance allowed.

To bring you some competition, we invited ‘Canada’s Smartest Person,’ Peter Dyakowski, to take the Maclean’s quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats, and also won CBC’s ‘Canada’s Smartest Person’ contest in 2012.

This week, we tested his trivia skills on everything from secret societies to ‘the father of comedy’. After a modest 73% last week, Dyakowski returned with a personal best 93%.

“And I’m back in fine form!” he writes us in an email. “I bungled my Ivy Leagues and need to brush up on my Pacific geography, but I’m pleased!”

Can you beat that score? Just click on the link below and find out.
