Have you ever tried Googling restaurants in your favourite city?
If yes then you should've noticed a pattern....
TripAdvisor is often the first site that shows up.
Don't believe us?
Then try Googling: Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa and Quebec + the word "restaurant".
If anyone of these doesn't have TripAdvisor as their top 3 result, take a screenshot of you results page and we will send you $10 via Paypal (real talks, just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org).
So who's behind all of this dark magic?
Illuminati? Not quite.
