Speaker Anthony Rota yesterday was called an international embarrassment after presenting an SS member to the House of Commons as a “Canadian hero.” MPs expressed astonishment the member of the 14 Waffen Grenadier Division was given VIP treatment on Parliament Hill.

“It’s shocking that Members of Parliament rose to give him an ovation,” said New Democrat MP Peter Julian (New Westminster-Burnaby, B.C.). “Members did so because we took the Speaker’s word that this individual should indeed be granted this honour in good faith.”
