OTTAWA, Canada (CNN) – A Canadian politician apologized after being spotted undressed during a parliamentary video call on Wednesday.
Whether Amos, a federal member of parliament (MP) from Pontiac, Quebec, for the Liberal Party, can be seen inappropriately dressed in a screenshot that is being distributed online.
Fellow MP Claude Debelfey of the Bloc Quebec party pointed to Amos’ reluctance during the question.
“We saw a member during the issue who was dressed incorrectly. That is, without clothing. So maybe remind members, especially men, that suits and ties are appropriate, “DeBelfefey said in French, according to the parliamentary translator.
“We saw that the member was in very good shape, but I think that member should be reminded of what is appropriate and control his camera.
Parliament Speaker Anthony Rota replied to DeBellefeuille: “I would like to thank the honorable Member for her observations,”

Amos then posted an apology on his Twitter account.
“I made a really unfortunate mistake today and I’m obviously embarrassed by it. My camera accidentally stayed on when I changed into work clothes after I went jogging, “the tweet reads.
“I sincerely apologize to all my colleagues in the House. This was an honest mistake + it will not happen again. “
Amos is a member of the Liberal Party of Canada, led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
CNN contacted Amos and the prime minister’s office for comment.
In June 2020, the Canadian Parliament saw a new controversy after the leader of the Canadian New Democratic Party, Jagmiet Singh, was forced to leave the building after calling another politician a “racist”.

Singh filed the charge in the House of Commons after Alain Terien, of the Bloc Québécois party, refused to support a proposal calling on parliament to recognize the existence of systemic racism in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Bloc Québécois tweeted to the stock market and called on Singh to apologize for what he said tarnished Therrien’s reputation.
