It has been four years since Isabelle Charest won Brome-Missisquoi, usurping the Liberal stronghold, and helping the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) on its way to a majority government in Quebec, but has the pandemic changed the landscape of the riding?
The Record reached out to Charest, as well as every candidate in Brome-Missisquoi, to discuss what they have planned for the riding, and what issues they most want to tackle should they be voted to lead and represent the residents this corner of the Eastern Townships.
The incumbent, Charest, has heard positive feedback going door-to-door in the riding. When she was elected in 2018, Charest told her constituents that she would be there on the ground for merchants, organizations, businesses, and residents. And they mostly seem to be satisfied.
“What I’m seeing, and what I’ve been hearing for the last four years, was how much we were present, so I’m super satisfied with that because I think that’s the role of an MNA to be there in the field and be there in present to be the voice of the citizens,” Charest told The Record.
With the health network in question for most of the CAQ’s time in office, due in large part to its management of the pandemic, Charest said there is a heavy focus on attracting and retaining health care workers, doctors, nurses, at Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins (BMP) Hospital.
