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 ...

B.C. Liberals’ refusal to fund Community Safety legislation leaves Surrey neighbourhoods in fear
SURREY – Problem properties in Surrey have neighbours living in fear with no immediate solutions in sight because the B.C. Liberals have turned their backs on funding a practical solution to protect the community. Two single family dwellings that have been operating illegally as controversial lodging houses have become the source of an alarming amount of criminal activity including daylight robberies and violence which has resulted in over 100 police visits. Surrounding residents have resorted to barricading their homes and installing security devices. The City of Surrey is stuck in a zoning regulation court battle with the landlords of the problem homes – allowing crime, noise and nuisance issues to continue disrupting the lives of residents. “It’s outrageous that the B.C. Liberals aren’t taking action to address this issue of problem houses and restore a sense of security for Surrey residents,” said Surrey-Whalley MLA Bruce Ralston. “The government has legislation in pl
Sexually abused children being revictimized by the B.C. Liberals’ continuing legal war
VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberals misled the public last week when they said their decision to appeal a scathing sexual abuse case was about matters of law not about attacking the family, say New Democrats. “Last week B.C. Liberal Children and Families Minister Stephanie Cadieux said continuing to drag this case through the courts wasn’t about the family, but about matters of law.” said Doug Donaldson, the New Democrat spokesperson on children and families. “This week we find out the B.C. Liberals continue to deny the children were abused, deny the B.C. Liberal government did anything wrong, and claim the children’s mother is in the wrong.” A letter sent to the mother this week makes it clear the B.C. Liberals want to dispute the factual findings of the judge who heard the case, including the fact the children were sexually abused. This will be the third time in this case the family has faced the B.C. Liberal government’s taxpayer-funded lawyers. “It’s appalling the B.C.
UBC Board of Governors - Liberal government appointees operating in chaos, secrecy and conflict
VICTORIA – The handling of the Arvind Gupta departure shows the UBC Board of Governors, a group dominated by B.C. Liberal government appointees, is operating in chaos, secrecy and conflict and putting the school’s reputation at risk. In September of 2014, shortly after Arvind Gupta began a five-year term as the new president of UBC, B.C. Liberal Premier Christy Clark said his appointment “is a great moment for UBC and for post-secondary education in British Columbia.” Just one year into that term, following a UBC Board of Governors meeting, Mr. Gupta departed under mysterious and controversial circumstances. “Since Dr. Gupta’s mysterious parting of ways with UBC, the Board of Governors has attempted to meet clandestinely and silence faculty, letting the situation deteriorate into secrecy, conflict and chaos,” said New Democrat advanced education spokesperson Kathy Corrigan. “While our institutions should be protecting academic freedom, the board has done the opposite, c
Damning UBCM survey shows premier’s AGLG has increased burden on local taxpayers
Victoria - A new survey from the Union of B.C. Municipalities shows that the Premier Clark’s Auditor General for Local Government project has only increased the burden on local governments and costs for local taxpayers. ”Premier Christy Clark claimed that the AGLG would help local taxpayers, but this survey shows that AGLG audits cost municipalities an average of more than $12,000 for little or no results,” said NDP local government spokesperson Selina Robinson. The survey’s findings include: AGLG staff and contractors have little understanding about the operations of local government; AGLG staff wasted one year and cost a local government $20,000 auditing police services over which the AGLG has no jurisdiction; Participation in AGLG audits cost local governments’ an average of $12,378, and resulted in local government staff being asked the “same questions over and over again by auditors who did not understand the business.” Only 2 of 17 local governments surveyed felt
