AL – It was an interesting day in the House of Commons yesterday. Basically what happened members of the NDP were physically blocking a Conservative member from starting a vote. PM Justin Trudeau took matters into his own hands and physically pulled the member through the line of blockers but by doing that elbowed one of the NDP members accidentally which resulted in a very heated conversation with Mulclair after.
So it’s pretty obvious Trudeau didn’t mean to elbow the MP but he still shouldn’t have physically touched anyone no matter how frustrated he is getting with the actions of the opposition. A wild day in Canadian politics for sure.
Good Lord ... if I read this correctly, Justin Trudeau just punched Jose Bautista in the House of Commons.— CC (@canadiancynic) May 18, 2016
Best tweet so far about the whole thing.
