After four years in power, the government led by François Legault of the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) has achieved, in whole or in part, nearly 80% of its 251 promises made in 2018, during the last election, according to the Laval University Polimeter. Among them, we find in particular the investment in home care or in meals in CHSLDs. However, several other key commitments have not been kept, such as access to a family doctor, the reduction of waiting lists for a place in CPE or the reform of the voting method.
MEAL IN CHSLD ✓ COMPLETED
“[The CAQ promises] more budget to provide quality meals [in CHSLDs]. »
The outgoing government had provided in the 2020-2021 budget, an additional $100 million over five years to improve the quality of food supply in CHSLDs.
HOME CARE ✓ FULFILLED
“A CAQ government is committed to investing $800 million for home care. »
François Legault's government has practically doubled its commitment by investing nearly $1.5 billion in home care.< /p>
REMOVAL OF RELIGIOUS SIGNS ✓ COMPLETED
“[The CAQ promises] the prohibition of the wearing of religious symbols to personnel in positions of authority, which includes teachers. After 10 years of debate on religious signs and accommodations, it is high time to act and adopt a real law on the secularism of the State. »
The adoption of Bill 21 allowed François Legault to keep his electoral promise by prohibiting all state employees in positions of authority, such as police or judges, as well as teachers or school principals, to wear religious symbols.
REFORM OF THE ELECTION ✗ BROKEN
“[The CAQ promises] a new electoral law to switch from the majority voting system to the mixed proportional voting system. »
This promise made by the party of François Legault was completely abandoned in December 2021 even if a bill had been tabled and that an agreement had been reached with several opposition parties.
This reform was intended to better represent voters in the National Assembly of Quebec.
FAMILY PHYSICIAN ✗ BROKEN
“With a CAQ government, all Quebecers will have a family doctor and will be able to consult him or a specialized nurse practitioner, within a maximum period of 36 hours, within 4 years. »
The number of orphan patients continues to grow under the CAQ government, which had nevertheless promised a doctor for every Quebecer.
The number of Quebecers on the waiting list for medical services a family doctor increased dramatically during the CAQ's mandate, from 474,000 to 830,000.
