The province's Conservative MPs considered long and hard their options regarding their support for previous budgets and took an awful lot of fire for supporting them in the end (whether those budgets were not good for the province is a matter of debate). Foote is under nowhere near the pressure Fabian Manning, Norm Doyle and Loyola Hearn were under. Foote is in opposition opposing a government bill; the Tories were in government under pressure to support their government lest it fall. Judy Foote isn't being whipped by her party to help save it from losing power.
As I'm not pleased with this budget I'm happy that Foote has chosen to oppose it, but should anyone think she is under anywhere near the pressure Newfoundland's Conservative MPs were under when they were pressured to vote for their budgets they are quite mistaken.
