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 ...

New Democrats call for legislation to protect franchisees
The B.C. Liberal government should be taking more action to ensure that British Columbia franchisees are operating on a level playing field with the corporations they are partnering with, say the New Democrats. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs in this province, yet the lack of support from their provincial government means that they are often at the mercy of large franchisors,” says New Democrat finance spokesperson Carole James. “British Columbia needs legislation like they have in other provinces to ensure that these large corporations deal fairly with small businesses. “If the Liberals aren’t prepared to introduce this type of legislation this spring, New Democrats will.” James said the regulatory void means franchisees often have obligations to the parent company but fewer rights. Franchisors exert significant control over the small businesses, she said. “When people buy real estate, the seller is required to d
Christy Clark ignores families, gives top income earners a break
While B.C. families are paying more for everything and wages aren’t keeping up, Christy Clark has chosen to give a $230 million tax break to B.C.’s top 2 percent of income earners, says New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “This government is out of touch with real life for B.C. families. Today, Premier Christy Clark showed she doesn’t even know who is hurting and who needs a break. She offered no comfort for British Columbians who are struggling to get by, but she is going to cut taxes for British Columbians who make $150,000 or more,” said New Democrat leader John Horgan. Under the B.C. Liberal government, the medical services tax has doubled, Hydro rate hikes will reach 80 percent, ferry fares and camping fees are up, while wages aren’t keeping pace. “Families are paying more and getting less. People can’t find a family doctor, are struggling to get adequate seniors care, and the schools and hospitals they depend on are underfunded,” said Horgan. At the same time, pa
Budget 2015: $230 million tax break for the top 2%, paid for by BC families
British Columbians already stretched to their limit will face more fee and rate hikes in 2015, continue to get less in services, and pay for Premier Clark’s tax cut to the highest paid British Columbians as a result of the B.C. Liberals’ budget. “Families are already struggling – their costs are going up and their wages are flat. As if it isn’t enough that families are being nickeled and dimed by rates and fare hikes, they are going to pay to give a break to British Columbians who need it least,” said New Democrat spokesperson on finance Carole James. James said low and middle income earners need a break, but are instead facing another four-per-cent hike to MSP premiums, a six-per-cent hike to hydro rates, ferry fare hikes, higher tolls, park fees and ICBC rates. “BC wages aren’t keeping up. In fact they’re falling in real terms,” said New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “Instead of giving a break to families who are struggling, the B.C. Liberals singled out the to
B.C. Liberals take money from cities to pay for BCLC mistake
B.C. cities that host casinos are losing revenue because of the B.C. Liberals’ botched restructuring of the B.C. Lottery Corporation, say the New Democrats. “First, the B.C. Liberals managed to spend $28.5 million on a restructuring project that was meant to save money, and now they're passing these costs directly on to cities that had nothing to do with this screw up,” said New Democrat gaming critic David Eby. "As if people didn't pay enough municipal property tax, now they're being asked to subsidize this government's mistakes." A complex provincial accounting trick has reduced casino profit usually paid out to cities. Of the $28.5 million lost in the restructuring – including $25 million spent on a disastrous early retirement and severance packages recently profiled in an internal government audit of BCLC – the B.C. Liberals dispersed $22.6 million in costs to casinos and gaming centres across the province, where the money was absorbed under their administrative and o
