PQ explains question period catnap
A PQ MNA says a sleep disorder caused him to drop-off in the middle of question period yesterday.
The party has some explaining to do after an apparently dozy day.
Former minister Daniel Breton says he has a sleep disorder, and that he had made arrangements to see a doctor two weeks ago.
"I've got a meeting with a doctor on March 7th for sleep apnoea," he says. "I have a problem with sleep and that's why."
Breton was seen nodding off in the background during question period yesterday, in full view of the National Assembly cameras.
But, Minister Pascal Bérubé says any talk of him dozing off is wrong. No camera caught him doing it.
"Yeah right, we got the tape. You want to see the tape?" he told reporters this morning. "I was not sleeping at all. I was just, like, um...watch the tape. Just watch the tape."
Still, the PQ's opponents aren't sleeping through this chance to poke fun. They made several jabs at the "tired" PQ during today's question period.
