Outburst

May 19, 2018

This week “Outburst” comes to you from Vancouver, Saskatoon, Fredericton, and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians: Why do you think First Nations children are over-represented in the welfare system? What is the most important thing the government can do for Indigenous children in this country? How would you rate the government’s progress on truth and reconciliation? How important is the Royal Family to you? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
