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."
