“It simply came to our notice then [qui ont suivi les mesures] Because they say to themselves that they have lost themselves, ”explains a medical psychologist and associate professor at the University of Quebec in Montreal.

And anger on the other hand is on the rise.

« [Au Québec], We have seen anti-government movements, but not so much growing if we look at the measures taken in the end. […] Judging by the surveys we have conducted, there is considerable support for these measures, ”he says.

“There is a lot of controversy in France, which is a cultural question,” he adds. It will be even more interesting to see how the health pass is enjoyed in France because it will inevitably have an impact in Quebec. “
