Transport Minister Lisa Raitt (left) prompts Green Party Leader Elizabeth May to stop her speech and leave the stage at the Annual Parliamentary National Press Gallery, Saturday May 9, 2015 in Ottawa. Alcohol, politics, risque jokes and sometimes even real news —it's all been on the menu for the parliamentary press gallery dinner since at least the 1870s.
