Canadian MP apologizes after being spotted nude on camera during virtual meeting

A Canadian politician has apologized after appearing naked during a virtual video meeting, saying his camera was accidentally left on as he was changing clothes.

Will Amos, federal member of parliament for Pontiac, Quebec, was seen completely unclothed in a photo that has now become viral.



Claude DeBellefeuille, a legislator for the opposition Bloc Quebecois Party, pointed out Amos’s appearance during the question period of the meeting.

"We have seen a member during question period improperly dressed. That is, unclothed. So perhaps remind the members, especially the male members, that suits and ties are appropriate," DeBellefeuille said in French, according to CNN.
