Jobs, jobs, jobs: Alexandre Boulerice talks unemployment, bills and unions

Alexandre Boulerice is no stranger to tough battles. A former Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) communications officer, he was elected to as MP of Rosemont La Petite-Patrie in Montreal -- a riding once solidly held by the Bloc Québécois -- as part of the Orange Wave in 2011.

Now the NDP labour critic, Boulerice has fought off criticism from the Conservative party that he’s not a patriot. Their accusation stems from a blog post written in 2007 where he described WWI as "a purely capitalist war on the backs of the workers and peasants."

Sixteen Conservative Senators voted with Liberal Senators to block Bill C-377, which means that the controversial legislation has to go back to the House of Commons. The Senate passed a series of amendments, effectively defeating the major provisions of Bill C-377.
