A Liberal MP and Olympic kayak gold medalist was up the creek with no paddle or manners — and later apologized after saying “F— you” to a woman calling for the end of vaccine mandates

It came after a Brantford-born woman, who lives in New Zealand with her new husband, asked for an apology from Milton MP Adam van Koeverden.

“I’d like him to apologize to Canadians for saying ‘f— off’ and for making anyone feel belittled or ostracized due to medical choices,” said Kate Faith, a teacher who got into a social media dust up with the one-time Canadian athlete of the year.

just hours after toronto sun posted a column about this, the 40-year-old paddling legend offered a mea culpa.

“I let my emotions get the better of me and I responded in an unacceptable way to a direct message and I regret that,” said van Koeverden. “I want to apologize to that person I offended with the message and anyone else I’ve let down.”

From New Zealand, Faith, the unvaccinated teacher who contracted the COVID-19 virus but fought it off, was reaching out to the 2004 Athens Olympics champion to complain about not being able to fly home.

The exchange got testy, dismissive and profane.

“You clearly have no idea how this all works,” was the response from van Koeverden’s account.

Faith wrote back “you guys all vote to support Mr. Trudeau. You won’t stand up and support a conservative motion even tough (sic) it’s the right thing to do … Are the mandates helping anyone’s health? Nope.”

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

Saying you “aren’t a scientist” from the van Koeverden account the answer was “well you sound a lot smarter than all the epidemiologists I speak with. Sorry I responded … Not here to inform you, Kate. Later.”

Faith wrote back “you are a disgrace of a Canadian,” to which the van Koeverden account wrote “F— you.”

Faith wrote back “are you upset? I haven’t seen my family in 2.5 years. I had to watch my papa (grandfather) get buried on facetime. I cant hug my parents or nana’s because of your Liberal mandates and you had the nerve to swear at me?”

The account ended with “I’m no
