William Amos: ‘Deeply Embarrassed’ Canadian MP Who Appeared Naked in Virtual Meeting Was Again Surprised


A Canadian MP, red-faced after appearing naked at a virtual House of Commons meeting, was again surprised.

William Amos, who has represented the Quebec district of Pontiac since 2015 for the Liberal Party, apologized for urinating while virtually attending debates in the House of Commons.

He comes just a month after he appeared naked on an internal parliamentary thread with only what appeared to be a cell phone preserving his modesty.

After the latest incident on Wednesday evening, Amos announced that he would be stepping down temporarily from his role as Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Industry François-Phillippe Champagne.

He will also be stepping down from the committee so that he can get help.

He will however continue to act as a Member of Parliament and thanked his staff and family for their love and support.

In a statement posted to social media on Thursday, he said: “Last night, as I virtually attended House of Commons proceedings, in a non-public setting, I urinated without realizing I was in front of the camera.

“I am deeply embarrassed by my actions and the distress they may have caused to anyone who witnessed them.

“Although accidental and not visible to the public, it was completely unacceptable, and I apologize wholeheartedly. “

Mr Amos also said the first incident in April was unintentional, saying at the time: “My video was accidentally turned on while changing into work clothes after jogging. “

Claude DeBellefeuille, member of the opposition Bloc Québécois party, had suggested that parliamentary decorum requires that male members wear a jacket and a tie – and a shirt, underwear and pants.

President Anthony Rota reminded MPs to always be vigilant when near a camera and microphone.
