For awhile yesterday, the big news was that SuperDogs were not returning to Stampede.
Instead, it’s Canine Stars.
But, then, a few hours later, #Elbowgate hit and Canadians lost their minds.
“Footage from the t.v. feed shows Justin Trudeau wading into a group of mostly New Democrat MPs and pulling Opposition whip Gordon Brown through the crowd to try to get the vote started. As he’s pulling Brown through, he pushes past Quebec MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau, who is seen with a look of discomfort on her face, as she jostled about. Brosseau says she was so shocked by the encounter, she had to leave the chamber and missed the vote. The Speaker of the House has concluded that Brosseau’s privileges as an MP were breached in the scuffle, which means the incident will be examined by an all-party committee.” – from our sister station Newstalk 770.
The House of Commons #Elbowgate comes right after The Toronto Blue Jays got into it with the Texas Rangers, with Rougned Odor punching Jose “Bat Flip” Bautista in the face. Canadians deemed it “Basebrawl.” – Sarah
