WAR ON FART! CANADIAN GREEN PARTY LEADER OBJECT THE USE OF WORD ‘FART’ DURING DEBATE…EH,BECAUSE FART CAUSES ‘GLOBAL WARMING’?
An argument has erupted in the Canadian parliament because a politician used the word ‘fart’
Conservative MP Michelle Rempel claimed the government was treating the province of ‘Alberta like a fart in the room’ over employment
But her impassioned speech did not go down well, and Green Party leader Elizabeth May asked for the innocent word to be revoked.
May said: ‘I heard her say a word I know is distinctly unparliamentary, and I think she may want to withdraw it.’
‘Decorum is important, and respect is important in this place’.
She said she was quite aware of the plight facing workers in Alberta – where unemployment is at a 22 year high and food bank use has shot up 17 per cent in a year – but that she still had an issue over the use of the word ‘fart’.
