On Wednesday May 18, 2016, a disturbing incident took place in the Canadian House of Commons (as can be seen in the above video). I have watched this clip a few times, and I have noticed something that nobody else seems to have realized. Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada, was sexually assaulted by Ruth-Ellen Brosseau, NDP representative for the riding of Berthier—Maskinongé, QC. It is quite clear that by standing where she was standing, she caused her breasts to inappropriately come in contact with the elbow of Mr. Trudeau. To make matters worse, Ms. Brosseau then chose to place the blame on the Prime Minister, when it was her breasts that were clearly impeding the path of Mr. Trudeau’s elbow. I believe that Ms. Brosseau owes the Prime Minister, and for that matter, all of Canada, a sincere apology for her inexcusable behaviour in the House of Commons.
OK. To be serious for a moment. Do I actually believe that Brosseau assaulted Trudeau with her breasts? Of course not. I believe that about as much as I believe that Trudeau assaulted her. The fact of the matter is, both Brosseau and Trudeau (and a number of other politicians) were in a place where neither of them should have been at the time. All of those politicians who are standing on the floor in this video are not where they should be. So…Mr. Trudeau and Ms. Brosseau, kindly stop acting like children. Grow up, take your seats, and get back to the business of running this country.
