MP accused of harassment

A Liberal member of Parliament from Quebec is accusing a Conservative MP of making comments towards her that were "humiliating" and "sexual in nature."

Sherry Romanado stunned the House of Commons into silence when she rose to make the allegations shortly after question period.

Romanado says Conservative MP James Bezan made remarks that she described as "inappropriate, humiliating and unwanted comments" that were sexual in nature.

She says the comments have caused her great stress and negatively affected her work environment.

Romanado's comments came after Bezan rose in the House of Commons earlier Monday and offered an apology for unspecified remarks, without going into detail.

Romanado is her party's junior minister for veterans affairs, while Bezan is the Conservative party's defence critic.
