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 ...

Clark’s LNG promises still empty, despite federal approval, says NDP
VICTORIA – The federal environmental approval for Pacific Northwest LNG on Tuesday was little more than a reminder of Christy Clark’s failure to deliver even a single LNG plant, despite making it the key plank in the 2013 election campaign, say B.C. New Democrats. “Christy Clark promised British Columbians an LNG windfall during the last election. She promised to have one plant up and running a year ago, and five by the end of the decade. She promised 100,000 new jobs and to deposit $100 billion in a prosperity fund. None of that has come true,” said New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “The premier keeps making promises she has no intention of keeping. She says LNG in B.C. will be the world’s cleanest, but the Petronas project she is promoting isn’t even the cleanest proposal in B.C. We could be doing much more to limit emissions from this project, but Premier Clark has refused to ensure high standards. Instead of mandating an emissions cap like the federal government, Clar
John Horgan promises a new relationship with municipalities at UBCM
VICTORIA – A New Democrat government will build a new relationship with local governments in British Columbia, says B.C. New Democrat leader John Horgan. “Instead of listening, learning and embracing partnership with local governments, our premier continues to deny, deflect and download costs,” said Horgan. Horgan made the remarks during a speech at the Union of B.C. Municipalities’ annual convention. He pledged to end the divisive politics of the Christy Clark Liberals, and head a government that works with local leaders to take the province forward. “I want to restore people’s faith in the ability of government to make life better, to make change happen, to invest in our future, to come to the table with new ideas, [and] to make our economy work for all of us, not just a fortunate few,” said Horgan. Horgan said that a New Democrat government will share local government priorities like investment in transportation infrastructure across the province, and pledged to four-l
Clark breaks election promise, reduces youth drug treatment beds
VICTORIA – Despite Premier Christy Clark’s assurances that ‘good progress’ is being made helping British Columbians with substance abuse issues, New Democrats have revealed that treatment spaces for youth fell by 25 per cent in the last two years, said New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “The premier said the right things when she promised 500 new addiction treatment spaces in the 2013 election campaign, but now we know that not only has she missed her own deadline, but she has actually reduced addiction treatment spaces for youth over the past three years while the overdose epidemic was growing,” said Horgan. Horgan was speaking after attending a panel discussion on the drug overdose crisis in British Columbia at the Union of B.C. Municipalities conference in Victoria. He pointed out that in the Fraser Health Region, which includes 1.6 million people, there were only 10 youth treatment spaces available last year. “The government’s response to underserving the Fraser Heal
Cruel benefit clawback policies to end following pressure from families, New Democrats
VICTORIA – After months of pressure the Christy Clark government has finally agreed to end benefit clawback policies that drove families deeper into poverty, says B.C. New Democrat social development spokesperson Michelle Mungall. “John Horgan and the B.C. New Democrats demanded that the government do the right thing for families by putting an end their cruel policy of taking away parental leave and other Employment Insurance benefits from disabled British Columbians,” said Mungall. “It may have taken a looming election for Christy Clark to finally start paying attention to families affected by these clawbacks, but at least they will finally see a change. Unfortunately, this is just one of many backwards B.C. Liberal policies that has left families struggling to afford the basics.” Just this spring the Christy Clark government insisted that taking away maternity and parental leave benefits that disabled people paid into was the right thing to do. Mungall said she hopes that t
