(TIMELINE) The Chronicles of Gilles Duceppe

Gilles Duceppe, leader of the Bloc Québécois has an eventful career as a union negotiator, MP, party leader, militant communist, and hairnet fashionista. He was the longest serving party leader for his service to the Bloc from 1997 to 2011. After falling to the NDP’s Orange Wave in the 2011 election, Duceppe resigned and was thought to be finished in the realm of federal politics. However, Quebec sovereignty’s favourite politician is back and hoping to bring his party into relevance once again. The True North Times has put together an interactive timeline that chronicles the political history of Gilles Duceppe, current leader of the Bloc Québécois. It is the fourth in our 5 federal leader timelines that will be released every day until election day. Sit back and enjoy our interactive timeline. You may learn a thing or two. We sure did.
