The Legalt government on Tuesday unveiled the election results conducted since the beginning of the epidemic to measure population support for health measures. Support for the vaccine passport, confidence in ministers, opinion of Quebecans with some restrictions; The data claimed by the opposition parties over the months in the National Assembly has laid a wide net. The results of these sounds give Quebec an overview of the statistics at hand to make its decisions.
Here are some highlights:
Strong support for the vaccine passport
According to an investigation by SOM in mid-June, three out of four Cubans agree with the government’s idea of issuing a vaccine passport “most” or “somewhat”, most recently in public, on Tuesday. A month later, Health Minister Christian Dubey announced that he would go ahead with the move next fall. When asked if the document would allow them to “access certain places or practice certain activities”, 70% of respondents said they agreed with the “most” or “somewhat” measure.
Legalt is still popular
Quebecs ’satisfaction with the Legalt government’s health crisis management has always been very high since last year: between 70% and 80%, according to surveys conducted by SOM. A few months ago, it was only in early April. This coincides with the moment when Prime Minister Franకోois Legalt imposed “emergency measures” in many areas, lagging behind the many reliefs granted a few weeks ago. However, two-thirds of Cubans (66%) still support his crisis management.

Cubans trust their regional politicians more than the federal government to handle the COVID-19 crisis, with one exception: Education Minister Jean-Franకోois Roberz. According to the latest statistics from SOM, the confidence of one in 51 Kubekers is second to none. By comparison, Franకోois Legalt (79%), dr Horacio Arruda (78%) and Health Minister Christian Dubey (78%) had the highest scores. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (53%) can still be comforted as he is a little better.
Reduces concern over new variants
The fear of Cubakers facing the arrival of new variants has been steadily declining since mid-April, we learned from reading a recent survey released by the Legalt government on Tuesday. Although the Delta variant spreads rapidly in some countries (first identified in India), its presence in Quebec is small. During the investigation, between June 8 and 14, 49% of respondents were concerned about variants, compared with 75% in April. Keep in mind that between the two periods surveyed, the number of COVID-19 cases in Quebec dropped and the vaccine campaign began.
Here is a typical picture of the Quebec anti-vaccine
The typical Quebec “anti-vaccine” is for parents aged 25 to 54, often with minor children and generally less educated (high school or less). The company concludes SOM from studies conducted in December and January with 4,978 respondents. At the beginning of the year, almost a quarter of Quebec’s population (including 23% to 7% of the total) was considered “refractory” to the vaccine. Doubts about the preparation (or effect) of the vaccine, misinformation and fear of side effects are the main reasons given by those who do not intend to be vaccinated.
