Quebec Premier Legault announces health tax for unvaccinated | FULL

CA, 12 Jan 2022
Quebec Premier Francois Legault is expected to provide an update Tuesday after accepting a resignation letter from public health director Dr. Horacio Arruda.

In the letter, Arruda said he gave the best of himself as he helped lead the province’s response to the COVID-19 crisis, but that recent comments about the credibility of his and his team’s advice have “eroded the public’s trust and adhesion.”

He goes on to defend his work, however, saying the advice and recommendations he put forward were “the best possible” amid “a context of uncertainty and rapid progression of knowledge.”

Arruda had been in the position as public health director for nearly 12 years but became one of the most visible faces of the COVID-19 pandemic in Quebec, which has seen more deaths than any other province — along with some of the harshest public health measures to help contain the virus.

Arruda’s replacement has not yet been announced.
