A Quebecer Made A Pumpkin Version Of Dr. Arruda & His Office Had No Comment

This spring, Quebec's director of public health, Dr. Horacio Arruda, received a wave of love from Quebecers who made sweaters, loaves of bread and boxers in his image.

The frenzy continues, but this time, a Quebec woman's creation nods at this year's unusual Halloween.

Andrée-Anne Martel, a resident of Saint-Bruno in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, has created a pumpkin version of Dr. Arruda, and we must say it looks a lot like him!

This is not Martel's first time carving a pumpkin.

She says she practices the art annually, but current circumstances have given her inspiration:

"This year I wanted to wink at health and safety measures with something comical."

In a statement, Dr. Arruda's communications manager took the opportunity to underline "the talent of this very impressive young Quebecer."

However, she said Dr. Arruda's office had "no comment" because "we do not know if it is indeed a token of gratitude to Dr. Arruda."
