What is with Quebec politicians and cultural “values?”

Quebec politicians are at it again.
Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ) leader, François Legault, recently announced his party’s intentions to implement a “values test” for new immigrants.
This is the second time the CAQ has mused about this type of test. In 2015, the party also floated the idea of a values test.
It seems every time an election is near they do their best to one up one another to show that they are the party of “Quebec values,” whatever those are.
That’s the thing, aside from the protection of the French language, what are these proponents of Quebec’s values so keen to protect?
Is it the religious roots of the province?
Not likely, considering the quiet revolution changed the fabric of Quebec society back in the 1960’s.
