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 ...

Liberal insider wins contracts from the agency he leads
VICTORIA – Well-connected Liberal insider Larry Blain won $219,000 worth of public contract work from Partnerships B.C. while he was also serving as the chair of Partnerships B.C., according to documents obtained by the New Democrats. “It stinks,” said John Horgan, leader of B.C.’s New Democrats. “Mr. Blain was entrusted with leading a public agency that spent the public’s money. And that agency discovered that the only person who can do this work is Mr. Blain himself?” Mr. Blain’s consultancy, Aardvark Insights, also performed work for B.C. Hydro through Partnerships B.C. in late 2011. During that time, he was also a director of B.C. Hydro. Between 2003 and 2010, Mr. Blain was paid nearly $4 million as the CEO of Partnerships B.C. As chair, he billed $188,836 in fees and expenses. Mr. Blain also served on the boards of the Transportation Investment Corporation, Powerex, and BC Hydro, which paid him $264,000 for his services over the same time. Between his director
Op-ed: Desperate premier selling British Columbians short on LNG
By John Horgan, Leader of BC’s New Democrats The premier of British Columbia’s job is to represent the interests of British Columbians first. She is supposed to work for the people who live here, the people who are raising their families here, the people who make our province successful. So when Premier Christy Clark announced a deal this week with Malaysian state-owned oil company Petronas for a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant, it was disappointing to see that she is clearly not putting the interest of British Columbians first. The B.C. Liberals made big promises about creating an LNG industry, promises they can’t keep. They promised we’d have LNG plants up and running this year. Yet not one shovel has been put in the ground. The premier and the B.C. Liberals are now desperate, and they are willing to do anything to get even one company to commit to building an LNG plant here – even if it means signing a deal that doesn’t deliver the benefits they promised to British Col
Former staffer’s allegations expose Clark Government’s focus on secrecy and self preservation
VICTORIA – A former executive assistant to the Minister of Transportation is alleging he was ordered to destroy more than a dozen emails requested under the Freedom of Information Act in November of 2014. “These are shocking accusations,” said John Horgan, leader of B.C.’s New Democrats. “If these claims are true, they speak volumes about this government’s obsessive need for secrecy and its contempt for the public. This is like keeping the paper shredder running in the back room all night; it’s a symptom of a sick government.” In a letter to Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham, former executive assistant Tim Duncan says when he balked at destroying emails related to the Highway of Tears, a ministerial assistant “took away my keyboard, deleted the emails and returned the keyboard, stating ‘it’s done. Now you don’t have to worry about it anymore.’” Duncan writes that his ongoing concerns were dismissed and he was told, “It’s like The West Wing. You do wh
New Liberal fees shut working adults out of higher education
VICTORIA – British Columbians trying to upgrade their high school courses and better their lives came to Victoria today to protest the hefty new fees imposed by the B.C. Liberals. “There are huge human and economic costs to shutting working adults out of higher education,” said Kathy Corrigan, New Democrat spokesperson for Advanced Education. “These are hard-working people who are trying to build a better life for themselves and their families. Why on earth would the Liberals try to hold them back?” Amy Collins graduated from high school in PEI. She has overcome many challenges, including mental illness and a learning disability. Collins wants to be an electrician, and has upgraded her English, Physics, Biology and Chemistry at the Gathering Place in Vancouver. She wants to get started on Math 10 in September, but now has to find $1,600 to pay the new Liberal fees. Walid Haouas is a landed immigrant from Tunisia. He wants to take Petroleum Engineering at BCIT, but since his
