  • Lt. Governor’s Office Responds to Accusations Over Burin Peninsula Visit

    The province’s Lieutenant Governor has issued a statement following criticism that she was seen on the Burin Peninsula during the election campaign.

    The Office of the Lieutenant Governor says the office is politically non-partisan and Judy Foote takes her Viceregal duties seriously.

    Foote is former Liberal MHA and MP.

    The PC candidate in Burin-Grand Bank raised questions this week, accusing Foote of acting in a politically partisan manner after she was seen in the area.

    The questions raised prompted the Office of the Lieutenant Governor to issue a release outlining the personal reasons for being in the Grand Bank area this week.

    They include a Mother’s Day visit to her elderly aunt who cared for her as a child after her mother passed away, fixing the windows of her Grand Bank area home and supporting a literacy program at Lake Academy—an invitation she received in October.
