The 46-year-old lawmaker, who represents part of Quebec, later apologized for the appearance, which he said was unintentional.
“It was an unfortunate mistake,” Amos said in a tweeted statement by Rachel Aiello, CTV News reporter.
“My video was accidentally turned on while I was taking my work clothes off after jogging. I sincerely apologize to my colleagues in the House of Commons for this unintentional distraction,” he said.
Amos did not speak during the virtual session.
