This week “Outburst” travels to Vancouver, Winnipeg, Montreal, Halifax, and your nation’s capital to celebrate International Women’s Day! We are asking Canadians: What’s the most pressing issue for women in politics today? How do you think the women’s marches and the #MeToo movement will change Canadian politics? Why do you think there are more men than women serving as elected MPs? How do you think Canadian laws and policies might be different if there were an equal number of men and women in parliament? Would things be different? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
