Warkentin shamed as one of top House of Commons hecklers

Grande Prairie – Mackenzie MP Chris Warkentin has been called out as one of the worst hecklers in the House of Commons. According to a report by the CBC, Speaker Geoff Regan twice had to shame Warkentin when parliament was last sitting before the summer.

Regan has started identifying a heckling MP when he has to interrupt Question period to bring the House to order, in an effort to improve behaviour.

Conservatives were called out 20 times over 77 sitting days, with three mentions of New Democrats and two Liberals. Warkentin’s two nods were matched by one other Tory MP, while two others earned three slaps on the wrist.

It’s noted that it can sometimes be hard to identify individual hecklers. We’ve reached out to Warkentin for comment.
