The year 2020 was marked by COVID-19 and its consequences, both social and economical, for our citizens and organizations as well as for our merchants and our restaurant owners. Throughout this crisis, the people of Longueuil have shown their resilience in the face of adversity and shown solidarity, while many of our fellow citizens were going through difficult times or faced grief.
As the Quebec government declared a health emergency on March 13, 2020, and the first lockdown was put in place, we all had to adjust to this new reality. The City of Longueuil had to quickly put in place the necessary measures to ensure that services to the population were maintained, in compliance with public health directives.
As opposition in City Hall, the elected officials of Longueuil Citoyen have remained vigilant in the face of the situation, constructive in their proposals, in addition to making sure that no one is forgotten in these difficult times. This is what we intend to continue to do with the announcement of a second lockdown from January 8 to February 8.
While the COVID-19 vaccine gives us a glimpse of the end of this pandemic, there is still a long way to go. Together we will cross the finish line.
The elected officials of Longueuil Citoyen obviously remain available, do not hesitate to contact them: http://longueuilcitoyen.com/english/elus/
In the meantime, be careful.
Leader of the Official Opposition and Councillor for the district of Georges-D’Or
