A Canadian lawmaker was caught naked during a virtual legislative meeting.

As shown in a screenshot obtained by the Canadian Press William Amos, a Liberal MP, was recorded on camera standing naked in his office. He was apparently changing clothes, unknowing that his video was on.

The incident occurred during the questioning period, although it is not entirely clear how the other participants responded to the event. The 46-year-old lawmaker, who represents parts of Quebec, later apologized for the showing, which he said was unintentional.

“This was an unfortunate error,” Amos told CTV News reported Rachel Aiello. “My video was accidentally turned on as I was changing into my work clothes after going for a jog. I sincerely apologize to my colleagues in the House of Commons for this unintentional distraction,” he said.

A video feed of the meeting was publicly broadcast, but Amos did not appear in it as he was not speaking, CTV News. It's not clear who managed to grab the shot and send it to the press.

Bloc Quebecois Party Whip Claude DeBellefeuille poked fun at the incident, raising it as a point of order during the meeting.

'It may be necessary to remind the members, especially the male ones, that a tie and jacket are obligatory, but so are a shirt, boxer shorts or pants,' DeBellefeuille said in French.

'We have seen that the member is in great physical shape, but I think members should be reminded to be careful and control the camera well.'
