This week Outburst celebrates Canada’s 151st birthday! We are coming to you from Iqaluit, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Regina, Toronto, Montreal, Charlottetown, and your nation’s capital. We are asking Canadians: What does it mean to be Canadian? What is the quintessential Canadian cuisine? What is Canada’s role in the world? How do you think Canada will change the most over the next 25 years? We also test your Canada Day knowledge with our “Brain Teasers” segment!
