Councillor’s aide steps into fecal fracas

`Depending on who you talk to, a political aide who cleaned up a non-political mess deserves either a gold star or a slap on the wrist.

Mike Patton took on extra duties last Thursday when he mopped up what he called a “poo apocalypse” in a downtown public library.

Thursday afternoon, a patron of the Ottawa Public Library opened the men’s bathroom door to discover a toilet seat and surrounding floor covered in feces.

“Clearly someone was not feeling well and had a bit of a diarrhea issue, and it was all over the seat and the floor and the toilet, in the stall area,” said Patton, who revisited the scene of the grime with CBC on Tuesday.’
