This week “Outburst” comes to you from Vancouver, British Columbia, Calgary, Alberta, and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians: What would it take for you to become more engaged in federal politics? Are you satisfied with how the federal government spends your tax dollars? Would you agree with a law that would fine people for using their smartphones while crossing the street? What is the best way to prevent young Canadians from smoking? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
