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

We’ve also invited the Maclean’s Genius, Peter Dyakowski, to take the quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats who also bested the competition in CBC’s Canada’s Smartest Person contest in 2012.

This week is inspired by our Newsmakers issue—on newsstands and digital platforms now—where we look back at the people, icons, institutions and places that drove stories from last year. We tested him on everything from the Olympics to euthanasia. He scored 80 per cent.
