Justin Trudeau, the Liberal MP most famous for being his father’s son, made headlines Wednesday when he channeled the ire of the green world and called Conservative Environment Minister Peter Kent a “piece of s–t.” The outburst came during Question Period. After Kent chided the NDP’s Megan Leslie for not attending a climate summit in Durban, Trudeau shot back “Oh, you piece of shit.” (Kent’s Conservatives explicitly prevented opposition MPs from joining the Canadian delegation.) Trudeau unreservedly apologized for the profanity after QP was done.
