OTTAWA - The NDP's Romeo Saganash will head back to work Monday following a leave of absence to deal with a "dependence on alcohol."

Beginning in late October, the MP of Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou in Quebec took time off after he was removed from an Air Canada Jazz flight when was deemed too drunk to fly.

Saganash said his "behaviour caused an unfortunate incident" that delayed the flight from Montreal to Val-d'Or, Que.
