François Legault approval rating

Legault still has highest approval rating of all premiers during COVID-19

Even after a 17-point drop.

Although the approval rating of Quebec Premier François Legault has dropped from 92 to 75 per cent over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, he remains the best-liked premier in Canada — in terms of how he’s handled this ongoing crisis, anyway — according to a new Angus Reid Institute survey. (It should be noted, however, that Atlantic Canada provinces were withheld from the survey as the study’s data was aggregated.)
