This week “Outburst” comes to you from Vernon, British Columbia, and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians: What’s the most important challenge for parliamentarians when they resume sitting this fall? How concerned are you about escalating tensions between the US and North Korea? What changes would you like to see concerning NAFTA? How do you feel about the federal government’s 10.5 million-dollar payment to Omar Khadr? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
