This week “Outburst” comes to you from Edmonton, Regina, Winnipeg, Halifax, and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians: What are the most important political issues for young Canadians? Should the voting age be lowered? How young is too young to be politically active? What should every voter know about candidates before they vote? We also test your Canadian knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
