Brad Butt (born May 10, 1967) is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 2011 election.[1] He represents the electoral district of Mississauga—Streetsville as a member of the Conservative Party.

Butt was president & CEO of the Greater Toronto Apartment Association since May 1999.

Butt provoked controversy in 2012 for making a 'finger gun' gesture at Liberal Leader Bob Rae, pretending to shoot him in the House of Commons.[2]

On February 6, 2014, Butt claimed during a parliamentary debate about a proposed bill on election reform that he witnessed people taking discard voter cards from the garbage and then handing them to other people outside voting stations to be used as identification. On February 24, he retracted the statement and admitted that he had made up the story. He said, "I misspoke during debate and corrected the record." He said that what actually happened was that he was relating stories that he had heard during his time as president with the Greater Toronto Apartment Association. "I did not see it personally and only said it in the House, not committee. I made a mistake."[3]
