MP Rob Anders Blames Crash For Dozing In House

Calgary MP Rob Anders says the reason he fell asleep in question period earlier this month is because of a recent car accident.

A YouTube video of Anders nodding off in the House of Commons on Nov. 17 has become a sensation online.

In an email to a constituent who had inquired about the incident, Anders said he was rear ended by an 18-wheeler and the resulting whiplash is taking a toll.

His constituency office has confirmed the accident happened, but there are no details about when or where.
