MacKay's Dog Comment

Clearly Peter MacKay is now in contempt of Parliament after going on record in the House that he made no such remark.

reply by: Rob on Nov 09, 2006

Why can't politicians ever just admit things and apologise?

Anyway, legally he's not in contempt since this wasn't on the record. Heckling rarely is. Nevertheless I think he damaged his reputation far more than being in contempt would.

Contempt of Parliament is lying to Parliament, whether is it on record or not. It is still comtempt.
