No new covid death marked Monday

No new Covid death in Quebec and thus in Montreal has been officially tallied Monday, the first time this has happened since March 22.

Forgive me if I suspect the Quebec government of lightening up on lockdown requirements and/or of lightening up the news to create a more positive mood as we approach St-Jean.

Also Monday, François Legault shuffled some cabinet positions. He has moved Christian Dubé to the tricky health portfolio, creating a new Minister of Higher Education post for Danielle McCann. Education’s Jean-François Roberge will now only manage elementary and high schools.

What is Legault telling us about government priorities to put Dubé, who was chair of the treasury board and is a financial guy through and through, in charge of health?
