Veterans advocates say a Conservative MP on the Commons veterans affairs committee slept through their presentation about efforts to help homeless former soldiers.
Jim Lowther, president of Veterans Emergency Transition Services, said he couldn't believe it when Calgary MP Rob Anders slept through the group's presentation at the Commons veterans affairs committee on Tuesday in Halifax.
Lowther said Anders came into the meeting 10 minutes late. "He was putting his arms up and rubbing his face," explained Lowther. "Then he started texting and then just slept for the rest.
"He almost smashed his head on the table, he was that out of it."
