A chat with Adrian Dix ‎

It has been a fairly rapid rise to power for an MLA first elected in 2005. Adrian Dix won the NDP leadership in April of this year and now heads up a Party that is riding a wave of confidence at the moment. While Dix says he doesn't like to take polls - which have the NDP ahead of the Liberals currently - too seriously, especially 18 months out from an election, he does believe they are an indication of voters' dissatisfaction with the status quo. "The polls are the reason there isn't an election this fall," Dix said, during a sit down interview with the Bulletin while in Kimberley this ...

Dix Wants to Restore Student Grants ‎

Prince George, B.C. - Leader of the B.C. New Democrats, Adrian Dix, says he wants to restore the non-refundable student grants to the level they were at 10 years ago. Speaking to a gathering os students at the College of New Caledonia today, Dix said he would like to see $100 million dollars set aside for such grants, because there has to be somethingdone to make it easier for people to get post secondary education. "You know, everyone says 80% of the jobs in the future will require a post secondary education, buit if nothing is done to make that education affordable, Isee a future where ...

BC NDP Leader Adrian Dix. ‎

These are good times for B.C. NDP chief Adrian Dix. The party he has led since last April is ahead in the polls, media reviews of his first full legislative session as leader were positive, and last week Mr. Dix hooked a whopper of a political fish, the just-retired, popular, ex-mayor of Port Moody, Joe Trasolini. Not only is Mr. Trasolini a good bet to win the coming by-election in Port Moody-Coquitlam, no one’s ever mistaken him for a left-winger. The fact he chose to run for the NDP, despite a previous history of support for and support from former riding MLA Christy Clark, who ...

MLA Michelle Mungall addresses BC NDP Convention
Vancouver – Nelson-Creston MLA Michelle Mungall addressed the BC NDP Convention in Vancouver today. Mungall spoke to delegates about the successful NDP campaign to end the BC Liberals’ mean-spirited policy that clawed back child support payments to single parents. This hurtful BC Liberal policy took $13 million of child support each year from kids because their single parents received social assistance, entrenching the cycle of poverty. “We worked with parents and children living this injustice,” Mungall told delegates. “In communities right across the province, people signed petitions and wrote letters because they got it. Children living in poverty is just wrong.” The NDP #endtheclawback campaign was a success, and the BC Liberals were forced to reverse the policy in the 2015 budget. More than 800 delegates from around the province are gathering in Vancouver for the BC NDP annual Convention. The Convention runs from Friday, November 6 to Sunday, November 8 at the Westin
John Horgan Wins Resounding Support to Lead BC New Democrats into 2017 Election
Vancouver – BC NDP leader John Horgan received resounding support from Convention delegates to lead the party into the 2017 election. “I am humbled by your support and ready for 2017,” Horgan told delegates. A mandatory leadership review, part of the BC NDP Convention, resulted in a 95% vote of support for the leader. In his speech to delegates earlier in the day, Horgan outlined an optimistic vision for the BC economy, one that fosters opportunity for everyone and is driven by innovation. “The opportunity to learn, contribute, and fulfill your potential should be there for every British Columbian,” said Horgan. “Government should make your success a priority.” But, Horgan warned the crowd, “Here’s what you need to remember about Christy Clark: your problems are only her problems when they become a political problem.” Horgan spent much of his speech looking ahead to the 2017 election. “Our team of candidates will be the best, and most diverse, we've ever put forwa
BC NDP Convention wraps up: Party energized and ready for 2017
Vancouver – Following a successful Convention, the BC NDP is energized and ready for the 2017 election. “We are leaving Convention today motivated and united, with a clear path forward to victory,” said BC NDP leader John Horgan. “We are focused on strengthening the middle class, creating good jobs in every corner of BC and in every economic sector, and creating opportunities so every British Columbian can succeed.” A number of key speakers addressed delegates over the weekend, including NDP Leader Tom Mulcair, Former Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm, Alberta Minister of Economic Development Deron Bilous, and a number of NDP MLA’s and MP’s. Convention delegates debated important policy in the areas of opportunity, innovation and change. Resolutions that passed covered many topics, including increasing secondary manufacturing in BC, support for a $10/day childcare plan, taking action on the Missing Women Commission, and holding a public inquiry into the Lakeland and
Christy Clark plays politics with school upgrades in Vancouver
VANCOUVER— The refusal to fund school upgrades in Vancouver shows that students are being forced to pay the price for Premier Christy Clark’s political whims, say the New Democrats. “It’s appalling that students in the Vancouver school district will be stuck with leaking roofs and damp classrooms because the premier is playing politics rather than looking after the needs of aging school buildings in B.C.,” said New Democrat education spokesperson Rob Fleming. “It’s clear that Premier Clark is not there for Vancouver students, parents and staff,” said Fleming. “Students in Vancouver deserve better.” Last week, the education minister revealed a list of 109 projects at schools which would receive a portion of a $35 million capital maintenance fund. Vancouver applied for $5 million in projects but was completely shut out. The B.C. Liberal-friendly NPA school board chair expressed dismay that the Clark government could be so petty. “Vancouver was the only district to
