I'm used to Canada but am only used to GPAs on the /4 or /4.33 scale, so I can't tell what 79.3% really means. That said, your GMAT score seems low for a Finance PhD at a school such as LBS (it's not terrible since the problem comes from the verbal side). However, your math background is definitely a plus, especially if it's from a school that's at least relatively well-known in Canada (e.g. Western, Queen's, and so on).

No clue about that -- it's school specific. Some schools will require it anytime your native language is not English while others won't if you've been to college in English.

That said, I'm sure you know entry at top finance schools is extremely tough. If you're set on doing a Finance PhD, I think you should make sure you apply to more than just LBS and apply to at least 1-2 lower tier schools.
