Quebec climate change Legault environment

Majority in Quebec dissatisfied with Legault government on climate change

Just 33% of Quebecers say the Quebec government has done a good job on environmental initiatives.

According to a study by the Angus Reid Institute, just 33% of Quebecers believe the Quebec government led by François Legault is doing a good job with regards to the environment and climate change. A slim majority, 55%, say that the Legault government has done a poor job on climate change.

The same study also found that 74% believe that Legault and the CAQ have done a poor job on housing affordability in Quebec.

“Premier François Legault endured some attrition this quarter with respect to his own personal approval, and his government, though recently re-elected, faces criticism on each of the three most important issues to Quebecers. On each, at least 64% say the government is doing a poor job currently.”

According to Angus Reid’s Government Performance Index (GPI) — which represents the average number of residents saying their own provincial government is doing a good or very good job across 13 different key issues including inflation, the economy and health care — just 1 in 3 Quebecers (33%) approve of the Legault government.
