A businessman from Toronto that was running for parliament with Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper’s party has been dropped – After video footage showed him peeing in a mug.
The CBC footage from 2012 shows Jerry Bance when he was working as a plumber, taking a pee in a customers mug, and then pouring it down the sink.
After being caught on the TV show’s hidden CTTV footage, a Conservative Party spokesperson has said that ‘Bance is no longer a candidate’, and added that Bance hadn’t been entirely honest in his application.
Obviously, Opposition New Democrat leader, Tom Mulcair couldn’t miss an opportunity to take the piss out of Bance, saying:
He must be someone who is adept at Stephen Harper’s trickle-down theory of economics.
Bance said in a statement that he deeply regrets his actions, and that they don’t reflect him as a person.
To be honest, it’s not great, but it isn’t THAT bad. Not when you look at some of the dark and seedy shit politicians get up to in Britain. It could definitely be a lot worse.
Still, you’d never have a cup of tea at his.
