      A politician who's twice left his camera on at inopportune moments says he's sorry.

      "Last night, while attending House of Commons proceedings virtually, in a non-public setting, I urinated without realizing I was on camera," Liberal MP Will Amos said in a May 27 statement. "I am deeply embarrassed by my actions and the distress they may have caused anybody who witnessed them."

      He noted that this was done accidentally and was "not visible to the public".

      "I will be stepping aside temporarily from my role as Parliamentary Secretary [to the minister of innovation, science and industry] and from my committee duties so that I can seek assistance."

      Amos, an environmental lawyer, has represented the Ottawa-area riding of Pontiac in Parliament since 2015

      Last month, Amos was seen naked on camera during a virtual Question Period.

      He didn't realize at the time that his camera was on as he was changing clothes after coming home from a jog.
