Rob Anders Sleeping: Calgary MP Appears To Doze Off In Commons Question Period (VIDEO)

OTTAWA - A member of Parliament from Calgary has been caught on camera appearing to doze off in the House of Commons.

Conservative MP Rob Anders seems to fall briefly asleep in a video making the rounds on YouTube.

The video is from last Thursday, when Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan was answering a question.

Behind Duncan, Anders' eyes close and his head falls forward for several seconds.

The incident is causing more than a few chuckles on the Internet.

One of many comments on Twitter jokingly suggests Anders is being paid to take naps.
