This is a return to active politics for the one who was federal deputy for Abitibi-Témiscamingue from 2011 to 2019. She then wore the colors of the New Democratic Party (NDP).
Clinical nurse in oncology and hemodialysis at the CISSS de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Christine Moore is currently completing a master’s degree in clinical nursing sciences. It is precisely her experience on the ground that motivates her to make such a hasty return to the political arena.
” It’s not a super good ”timing” for me. I am a graduate in nursing, my youngest is 3 years old, except that I see how it goes in the health system. I see how the workers are exhausted and I say to myself: we are not capable of doing another four years (under these conditions). If nothing happens, we are unable to continue for another four years like this. It doesn’t make sense. And it’s even worse in the North. »
In the North, Ms. Moore cites the example of Nunavik, which asked for reinforcements from the army to make up for the lack of health personnel.
It’s not trivial. When it’s over that a health system says it needs the army because it can’t. I think we need to have people who understand what is happening on the ground, able to provide concrete solutions and change the situation quickly. Because there, it is the people who are payingshe says.
With the Parti Québécois
Member of the Parti Québécois since 2019, Christine Moore believes that this is the best vehicle to meet her aspirations with a social project for a sovereign Quebec. She feels that Canada is dragging Quebec backwards.
The pandemic has nevertheless changed a lot of things in terms of the way of interacting on a global level. While we were very globally globalized, we realize that there, we need a little more autonomy. We have reached, with the pandemic, the breaking point where for us, there are many more advantages to leaving Canada and becoming independent and autonomous and to operate according to the aspirations of our citizens and to build what we want.believes the 38-year-old candidate.
Be present in Ungava
Christine Moore says she knows the territory of Ungava well, she who lives 15 kilometers from its southern border, in Abitibi-Ouest. During her first term as a federal deputy, a portion of this territory was part of her riding.
She intends to campaign in the municipalities and localities of the Jamésie region and in the Cree communities. She doesn’t know if it will be possible for her to visit the communities of Nunavik, but she intends to offer them opportunities to discuss and present their issues.
