Michelle Rempel, MP for Calgary-Nosehill, shared a little sample of what women in parliament have to endure. She shared a screen shot of an email that requested “a piece of that booty” and was signed “Yours sincerely, Hardwood.”

Rempel tweeted ” My small team of staff, who often work long hours to review legislation and help constituents, are paid by taxpayers. They’re not paid to respond to requests like this, nor am I. You might think it’s cute or funny or nice, but it’s not something we want.”

In a follow-up tweet, Rempel said, “I’m a leader, and a servant of the community, not a piece of ass.”
