Jerry Bance, a Toronto businessman, had been running for election to Parliament under Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper, when video footage from a 2012 episode of Marketplace captured the unusual urination.
Bance had been brought in as an appliance repairman and was unknowingly part of a sting operation on the show, which was designed to catch handymen overcharging homeowners for simple repairs.
As CBC cameras secretly rolled on Bance, and a producer pretending to be a homeowner left the room to let him work on her kitchen sink, well, the show got much more than they bargained for!
Ch-ch-check out the incredible video (below) and then see Bance's statement regarding his 2012 actions:
No! NO! NOOOO!!!!!!! He actually did it RIGHT in the coffee cup!!
Having gotten caught now three years later, Bance was remorseful about his actions:
"The footage from that day does not reflect who I am as a professional or a person. I deeply regret my actions on that day."
He ought to regret his actions that day; Harper has sacked Bance, and the pee-pee-politician is now no longer a candidate for office.
But the award for the best statement on this controversy goes to opposition party leader Tom Mulcair, who took a shot at Harper's conservative economic theories while making fun of Bance:
"He must be someone who is adept at Stephen Harper's trickle-down theory of economics."
Mic status: dropped.
But hey, at least it appears Bance didn't overcharge the sting operation's homeowners for repairs… right??
But now, the younger sister of Louis, Félicité Deakin (pictured above, left, with Louis), has figured out her own way to pay tribute to her mother in a very special manner, and we are SO touched by it.
On Friday, the 16-year-old Deakin shared the following image (below), a gorgeous portrait of the family with her late mother, Johannah Deakin, surrounded by all of her children:
