PM Justin Trudeau's actions have NDP Tracey Ramsey 'enraged'
'He said 'Get the bleep out of the way,'' Essex NDP MP says
Essex NDP MP Tracey Ramsey went face-to-face with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during an uproar in the House of Commons on Wednesday, video shows.
In footage from the House, Ramsey can be seen giving Trudeau a piece of her mind during a moment of chaos in the House.
Trudeau has been accused of "manhandling" Opposition whip Gord Brown and elbowing NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau as MPs gathered for a vote on the government's assisted-dying bill.
The incident took place in the aisle before the vote.
It all left Ramsey "speechless and enraged."
I'm utterly speechless and enraged by what I just witnessed <a href="https://twitter.com/JustinTrudeau">@JustinTrudeau</a> physically elbowing my colleague <a href="https://twitter.com/RE_Brosseau">@RE_Brosseau</a> in <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/HOC?src=hash">#HOC</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/cdnpoli?src=hash">#cdnpoli</a>—@traceyram
Conservative MP Michelle Remple noted online that Ramsey stood her ground during the fracas.

"He said 'Get the bleep out of the way,'" Ramsey said, adding Trudeau "violently" grabbed Brown.
Windsor West NDP MP Brian Masse gave his account of what happened on Facebook.
"From my seat, I saw Justin Trudeau move towards a group with unusual speed in the House of Commons, he then pushed in and pulled and turned with an inappropriate amount of force," he wrote. "This action resulted in a significant disturbance that made physical contact."
