A Quebec MP Apologized For Taking A Screenshot Of His Nude Colleague But Questions Remain

Bloc Québécois MP Sébastien Lemire apologized Wednesday in the House of Commons for taking a nude screenshot of Liberal MP William Amos.

Amos was going about his business on April 14 when he inadvertently gave his colleagues quite a view after accidentally strolling through a Zoom call naked during a legislative session.

Amos later said he was changing after a jog and did not know his camera was on.

On Thursday, Amos said he welcomed the apology, stating, “I appreciate that MP Sébastien Lemire came forward and confessed to me directly that he took the screenshot of me getting clothed after my run. I also appreciate that he apologized to me and my family over the phone.”

On Wednesday, Chief Government Whip Mark Holland said he believed Lemire’s claim that he did not release the image to the media but that the matter was far from over.

“Did Mr. Lemire share this photo with anyone? Who sent this image to the media, which was subsequently sharedall overthe world? How did this private, non-consensual image get from Mr. Lemire’s phone to those outlets with such speed?” he stated.
