A man running for a seat in Canada's parliament has been dropped from the ballot after cameras reportedly caught him urinating into a customer’s coffee mug three years ago.
Jerry Bance had been running as a Conservative for the Scarborough-Rouge Park seat but the party’s spokesman has now revealed he is “no longer a candidate.”
After getting a tip from a caller, CBC News first identified Bance as the man who was filmed urinating in a client’s mug as he worked as a home repair technician - a job he has had for 25 years.
The footage, which was taken by hidden cameras, aired in 2012 on the TV show Marketplace, which aims to expose workers overcharging customers for repairs.
In the video, a man identified only as "Jerry" can be seeing urinating in a coffee cup in a homeowner’s kitchen before pouring the liquid into a sink he was hired to fix. He then rinses the mug.
In a statement on Sunday, Bance said: “'I take great pride in my work and 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.”
