Are CHSLDs ready?
More than a month after the first meeting between Franசois Legalt and Horacio Arruda, Marguerite Blais was confronted with Info Sunday’s announcement on February 8, 2020. The Minister replied that he had not seen this document.
He also described the steps taken by Quebec to tackle the crisis. Quebec is particularly focused on preparing hospitals considering the situation in Europe, and these companies have been particularly affected, he explained.
“Everyone has good faith and everyone thinks it will happen in hospitals. When we set up specialized hospitals, we put up a pediatric hospital that we thought would affect children. That did not happen. We were unaware, ”she explained.
The Minister added that CHSLDs would not have been given special attention as they are used to managing all types of explosions, however, this is not a question of negligence.
“CHSLDs are known to manage eruptions,” he stressed. This is not the first time there have been outbreaks of CHSLDs, and it will not be the last.

“To see people die, you can not be indifferent about it,” he added, adding that this was a “basic” investigation.
Reactions in Quebec
The minister’s testimony provoked opposition in Quebec.
In light of the testimony of Quebec’s Liberal Party spokeswoman Marguerite Blaise for seniors, Monique Chau believes she can “no longer accept her duties as a minister” and is therefore asking for her resignation.
“The chaos is complete, but one thing is for sure: the CAQ escaped it with the CHSLDs and abandoned the adults to their fate. The families of those who died in the CHSLDs want to know the truth, and they have a right to it,” said Sol Solnetti, vice-president of the Solidarity.
