This week, the “Outburst crew comes to you from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Iqaluit, Nunavut, and Winnipeg, Manitoba. We are asking Canadians in the region: What are your ideas to improve conditions in some indigenous communities? What are the biggest challenges facing Canada in 2017? How could the problem of high- priced food in northern communities be resolved? What makes your part of the country so unique? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
