The individual known as “Balcony Man,” who gained notoriety for his profanity-laced tirade against Freedom Convoy protesters, has been identified as a senior staffer in the federal Liberal government.

As reported by the National Post, the man who was captured in a viral video calling convoy protesters “f-cking terrorist scumbags” is Matt MacDougall, currently a senior policy adviser for parliamentary affairs in the office of Liberal Government House leader Steve MacKinnon.

The video, which became a social media sensation in February 2022, features MacDougall, then working for House leader Mark Holland, now health minister, unleashing a verbal assault from his balcony. 

He is seen in the footage, dressed in a Philadelphia Eagles sweatshirt, angrily confronting the protesters below with statements like, “You’re here for a f-cking tailgate party and take over our city and think we’re going to take it?”

He added: “The hostages are getting their f-cking revenge. Watch yourself.”

At one point, MacDougall called a female protester a “dumb f-cking c-nt”, and said “I’m not taking advice from you, you stupid bitch.”

Despite the notoriety, “Balcony Guy” had remained unidentified until now. The incident, recorded in Ottawa’s Centretown neighborhood, was shot shortly before the Trudeau government invoked the Emergencies Act on February 14.

The National Post’s requests for comment from MacDougall and the House leader’s office have been met with silence, with director of communication Mark Kennedy stating, “We will not comment on personnel.”

The revelation continues a startling trend of Liberal advisors using disgusting language in public. On January 28, a recently hired senior advisor in the Prime Minister’s Office, Supriya Dwivedi, lashed out at critics on social media with a series of sexually explicit posts.

Trudeau Staffers caught planning to disparage protesters before they arrived

In November 2022, leaked texts between PMO and Public Safety staffers revealed deliberate attempts to frame the Ottawa protesters as “extreme,” drawing parallels to the January 6 event in America, (which has since been reported as being partially staged).

Furthermore, documents obtained by Blacklock’s Reporter disclosed that on the first day of the Freedom Convoy protest in Ottawa, Public Safety Canada issued a false internal bulletin claiming that protesters had entered federal office buildings, causing damage and necessitating a lockdown.
