Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized for Parliament's recognition of a man who fought alongside the Nazis during last week's address by Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
House Speaker Anthony Rota resigned yesterday after a controversy over inviting a man who had fought for the Nazi unit to a parliamentary event honoring the president of Ukraine that led to continued opposition to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and an apology was also being sought for the same.
Trudeau said he was very sorry for all the members standing and applauding in this House on Friday, even though they were unaware of the context.
He said that the Speaker was fully responsible for the invitation and recognition of this person and Anthony Rota has fully accepted this responsibility and resigned.
He said that it was a mistake that has deeply embarrassed Parliament and Canada.
He added that all of them are sorry for giving a standing ovation.
