This week “Outburst” comes to you from Vernon, B.C., and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians: Do you agree or disagree with a carbon tax? What are your ideas to improve Canada’s health care system? Should there be term limits for federal politicians? How has social media influenced how you follow federal politics? William Hall became the first black Canadian to receive which award? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
