People can't get over MPs' stylish living rooms during Canada's first virtual House of Commons

Canada's first virtual House of Commons meeting took place on Tuesday, and even though MPs had plenty of important issues to discuss during the Zoom call, it was their living rooms that stole the show.

No, really.

Just check out Mississauga MP Navdeep Bains' colourful pop art painting, which perfectly matched his pink turban.

And then there's Finance Minister Bill Morneau's sleek black and white living room, which looks like it just appeared out of an Ethan Allen catalogue.

And Calgary Nose Hill MP Michelle Rempel Garner proudly sported a Canadian flag on her fireplace, even though she's working from Oklahoma at the moment.

Lakeland MP Shannon Stubbs put us all to shame with her super clean kitchen, which instantly made all Canadians want to go wash their dishes.

And Elgin-Middlesex-London MP Karen Vecchio won the day with her wall of Karen Vecchio, because why wouldn't you want to show off your work accomplishments?

Like any other work call, MPs struggled to remember to unmute themselves before chiming in, with even our Prime Minister falling victim to the pitfalls of Zoom.

But all in all — barring a few connectivity issues — Canada's first virtual House of Commons session was a success.

Here's hoping Minister Navdeep Bains reveals where he got his fabulous painting soon.
