This week “Outburst” comes to you from Vernon, British Columbia, Fredericton, New Brunswick, and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians:What is the best approach to ease Canada’s fentanyl crisis? How would you rate gender equality in Canada? Is Canada too soft on illegal border crossers? Should some statues of controversial Canadian historical figures be removed? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
