Most Quebecers think Legault has failed on senior care, poll finds

A majority of Quebecers say Premier François Legault’s government has failed on senior care, a poll published on Monday suggests.

Sixty-two per cent of respondents say the Coalition Avenir Québec government has done a “poor” or “very poor” job taking care of the province’s elderly, the Angus Reid Institute found in a poll conducted in May.

More than 4,000 residents of seniors’ homes have died in Quebec. That number represents more than half of the overall death toll across Canada.

Angus Reid asked how the government was doing on a series of issues. Its worst mark was for senior care. Legault did well on the economy, the deficit and jobs – and 78 per cent said he has done a good job handling the COVID-19 crisis. And 56 per cent said the province is reopening at the right pace.
