Promise History

2.05.10 - “A re-elected CAQ government promises] a $650 million “Fonds bleu” (blue Fund) to […] fight invasive plants in our lakes and rivers; to help our farmers expand the riparian buffer strips that protect our waterways; to clean up the banks of our rivers; and also, to accelerate the upgrading of septic systems in isolated residences […] Resources from the fund will be used to bring wastewater facilities up to standard, enhance efforts to combat invasive plants, and help prevent water shortages. [It will also make the protection of our lakes, rivers and other waterways a priority”

« Signe que la protection de l’eau est une priorité pour le gouvernement du Québec, le projet de loi no 20 visant à créer le Fonds bleu, déposé en avril dernier, vient tout juste d’être adopté à l’unanimité par l’Assemblée nationale du Québec. […] Doté d’un premier budget historique de 500 millions de dollars sur cinq ans, le Fonds bleu garantira un financement adéquat, prévisible et soutenu à des initiatives visant à assurer la protection, la restauration et la mise en valeur de l’eau.  »

In the government’s budget, $500 million was allocated to create the Blue Fund rather than the $650 million promised.

“To achieve this, the government is investing $500 million over five years to support the creation of the Fonds bleu, a portion of which will be funded from the duty payable for water use, and is confirming the investments in Plan nature 2030”
