The CAQ Posted A Story About How Well Officials Handled The COVID-19 Pandemic

On March 12, one year after the health crisis first struck the province, the CAQ posted an anonymous story on its website — a story that praises Premier François Legault, Dr. Horacio Arruda, and all the other officials that had a hand in the province's pandemic response. 

The story reads like a review of Alec Castonguay's book about the pandemic, Le Printemps Plus Long, as the author likens the book to films like Mission Impossible and the James Bond series and describes government and health leaders as heroes.

The story, titled, "Could Another Team Have Done Better?" describes how "a new reality awaited us" and praises the response of Arruda and his team within the first days of the pandemic. 

"It is enough to read Alec Castonguay's book to realize that there are, in Quebec, many people who, thanks to their high sense of duty, have done everything to save lives. And they deserve to be our heroes."

The story concludes by imploring you to read Castonguay's book "to check out all the heroes of the pandemic."
