Rookie PC MLA Ryan Riordan puts foot in it

During the budget debate in the house this afternoon, Liberal Opposition leader Victor Boudreau was detailing the list of broken promises he claims have been wracked up by the Alward government. Boudreau was in the middle of detailing the cuts to education when young MLA for Nepisiguit, Ryan Riordan, blurted, "Good!" in reference to the cuts being a good thing. Boudreau immediately stopped his speech and pounced on Riordan for what he pointed out was an inappropriate comment. Boudreau continued to scold the Honorable Member for Nepisiguit until he felt the young man was sufficiently embarrassed on record then moved. on. What was Riordan thinking?
