This week “Outburst” visits Vernon, B.C., Halifax, and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians: Who should absorb the cost of a rising minimum wage? What would help broaden your interest in federal politics? Does Canada need NAFTA? Should political candidates be allowed to run for office if they’ve been accused of sexual misconduct in the past? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
