Member of the Canadian Parliament who was last month she was left completely naked during a virtual meeting of the House of Commons has suffered a second mortifying online incident.
William Amos on Wednesday “he urinated without realizing he was in the chamber,” he tweeted to the Liberal Party MP in an apology released Thursday.
“I am deeply ashamed of my actions and the anguish they may have caused anyone who has witnessed them,” he wrote.
The incident was “accidental and not visible to the public,” added the former environmental lawyer representing the Pontiac district in Quebec.
Amos announced his temporary “departure” from his committee’s duties and his role as parliamentary secretary to Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne “so he can seek help”.
In April, a screenshot of Amos naked during a virtual Commons meeting was taken by another lawmaker, went online and went viral, causing asks for an investigation because the images were only broadcast on an internal information channel visible to lawmakers and employees.
Amos then described the snafu as a “truly unfortunate mistake.”
“My camera was accidentally triggered when I changed into work clothes after I went to look for work,” he explained. “I sincerely apologize to all my colleagues in the House.”
“It was an honest mistake + it won’t happen again,” Amos added.
Today I made a very unfortunate mistake and it obviously embarrasses me. My camera was accidentally triggered when I changed into work clothes after jogging. I sincerely apologize to all my colleagues in the House. It was an honest mistake + it won’t happen again.
