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. New Democrat statement on the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women
VICTORIA— B.C. New Democrat leader John Horgan and women’s spokesperson Maurine Karagianis released the following statement recognizing the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women. “On December 6, 1989, 14 women were murdered at École Polytechnique in Montreal simply because they were women. Since that time, Canadians have set aside Dec. 6 as a day to remember and take action against violence against women. “Unfortunately, we have a long way to go before violence against women is eliminated. Rates of violence against women are troubling high across Canada, and Aboriginal women in particular experience violence at a rate much higher than the general population. “That’s why it’s critical not only to have a national inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women, but to commit to taking action following that inquiry. We need to do more than remember violence against women, we have to take action to end it. “Up to half of all women in British C
BC NDP launches by-election campaign: Candidate chosen to fight for Coquitlam-Burke Mountain Families
Coquitlam – In a packed room at the Coquitlam City Centre Library, New Democrats nominated Jodie Wickens to be their candidate in the upcoming By-election in Coquitlam-Burke Mountain. “It is a sincere honour to be the BC NDP candidate in the upcoming By-election,” said Jodie Wickens. “I care deeply about opportunities for Coquitlam families who are being ignored and left behind by Christy Clark. This is a growing and vibrant community with new families moving in everyday, yet we have the lowest education funding per student in the province. I will fight hard to represent families in Victoria.” Jodie Wickens is a long-time Coquitlam resident and is a proud mom of two young children, one of whom is diagnosed with autism. As the Executive Director of the Autism Support Network, her work in the community has focused on protecting public education to ensure every child has an equal opportunity to succeed. “Jodie is a hard working, principled community leader who will fight f
Hundreds pack NDP campaign launch in Coquitlam-Burke Mountain
The storefront at 2565 Barnet Highway was jammed with residents eager to see the launch of the by-election campaign for New Democratic Party candidate Jodie Wickens. Wickens was joined by John Horgan, BC NDP Leader of the Opposition. Wickens is running in the long-awaited by-election to replace Doug Horne, the previous Liberal MLA who ran for the Stephen Harper Conservatives in the federal election and lost. Wickens is a 33-year old mother of two who has lived in Coquitlam with her husband for the past 11 years. She is Executive Director of the Autism Support Network. “We deserve a champion who will fight for this community. I know how much we need new schools and improved transit,“ Wickens said. “People are struggling to pay increased fees for Hydro, ICBC and medical services premiums. Instead of helping them, the Christy Clark Liberals gave tax breaks to millionaires. As an MLA, I won’t back down when Christy Clark puts her political friends before families.” John Horgan
NDP leader welcomes by-elections with winning candidates
Vancouver – NDP Leader John Horgan began the first full day of campaigning in Vancouver-Mount Pleasant and Coquitlam- Burke Mountain with a clear message that people are tired of Christy Clark’s broken promises. “She promised to stand up for families, but instead Christy Clark and the BC Liberals gave millionaires a $236 million tax break,” Horgan said. “Then she hiked fees for MSP, BC Hydro and ICBC,” said Horgan. “She’s made a mess of transportation in Metro Vancouver, and she's neglected healthcare and education. People feel like she is only in it for herself and there is plenty of evidence that they are absolutely correct,” he said. Horgan said he also knows that people are angry about the BC Liberal government lack of ethics because candidates are hearing it on the doorsteps. “There are now two special prosecutors investigating the Liberals, including for the triple delete scandal, and then there is the Burke Mountain land giveaway,” he said. “People just
