WATCH: PCs accuse NDP MPP of mocking MPP Kaleed Rasheed
The PC government is accusing an NDP MPP of mocking MPP Kaleed Rasheed during Question Period on Tuesday.
NDP leader Andrea Horwath and MPP Gilles Bisson, who was accused of making an inappropriate remark while heckling Rasheed, both deny the accusation.
The government refused to answer any more questions from the opposition until Bisson apologized, which he refused to do, saying instead that the progressive conservatives were lying.
WATCH and LISTEN for yourself in the video above. The alleged heckle and response from the government happens at about the 28-minute mark.
