The leader of the Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ), François Legault, presented the candidate for the riding of Marie-Victorin. Shirley Dorismond, a native of Marie-Victorin, is a former vice-president of the Fédération interprofessionnelle de la santé du Québec (FIQ).

As a nurse, Ms. Dorismond wants to put “health promotion at the heart of her decisions”. She explains that she is looking forward to working with Minister Dubé. At the provincial level, she wants to give more importance to frontline health care workers. “It is time to make more room for the skills of nurses and pharmacists,” she explained alongside the Premier of Quebec.

“We needed someone who comes from the place. […] The people of Marie-Victorin and Longueuil have the opportunity to send me Shirley [to the National Assembly]. I’need Shirley in Quebec, she has the necessary experience for the overhaul of the health care system,’explains the Prime Minister, François Legault.

Since the passage of the former deputy for Marie-Victorin, Catherine Fournier, at the head of the city of Longueuil, the seat of the constituency remains vacant and involves a by-election. Other candidates have already positioned themselves to win the seat, such as Parti Québécois candidate Pierre Nantel and actress Anne Casabonne, representative of the Conservative Party of Quebec.

Historically, this constituency has largely carried PQ colors since its creation in 1980 (except for a single year in 1984).
