    'Fart' in parliament: Row blows up in Canada

    When Conservative MP Michelle Rempel accused the government of treating the province of “Alberta like a fart in the room” over jobs, Green Party leader Elizabeth May took exception.

    However, it was not the accusations of inaction which riled Ms May.

    “I heard her say a word I know is distinctly unparliamentary, and I think she may want to withdraw it,” the shocked Ms May said.

    “The word was f-a-r-t,” she continued, spelling it out clearly so as not to repeat the offending term.

    Unsurprisingly, the row has caused great hilarity on social media – especially in light of the political upheaval taking place just across the border.

    “With all eyes on Trump’s destruction of US politics and civil society, a silent but deadly political scandal in Canada,” tweeted Josh Greenberg, director of one of Canada’s leading journalism schools.
