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 failing to protect privacy, except their own
A report released today shows that the B.C. Liberals are working hard to frustrate the public’s access to information about government activities, but failing to protect their privacy, say the New Democrats. “The annual report from the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner shows that this government continues to make the same mistakes,” said New Democrat citizens’ services critic George Heyman. “They continue to fail to ensure the privacy of British Columbians is protected. Meanwhile, they continue to delay and deny legitimate freedom of information requests to avoid public scrutiny.” The report found that privacy breaches increased again this year, and have risen by 56 per cent in the past five years. At the same time, time extension delay requests by public bodies, which stall the freedom of information process, have gone up 123 per cent in the last two years, while complaints about access to information have gone up by 53 per cent in the last year alone.
Energy program won’t offset 28 per cent hydro hike families being forced to pay by B.C. Liberals
The B.C. Liberals’ new energy program won’t do enough to help families who are struggling to afford the Liberals’ 28 per cent hydro rate hike, say the New Democrats. “Hard-working families across British Columbia are struggling to make ends meet because of this government’s endless cost increases,” said New Democrat leader John Horgan. “This new tinkering won’t do much for the average family being gouged with a 28 per cent increase in their electricity bill.” Horgan was responding to the B.C. Liberals' announcement of a new makeshift energy rebate program, which won't help low-income families who can't afford new appliances in the first place. He noted that because of the Liberal government’s massive hydro rate increases, many homeowners will not see substantial benefit from the initiative. He added that for those that do, the benefits simply don’t go far enough. A more effective way of helping low-income families was proposed by Horgan in the spring legislativ
Liberals gouge B.C. families to pad government accounts
The release of Public Accounts today shows that the majority of the tabled surplus is actually a result of the B.C. Liberal government gouging B.C. families with increased fees and licencing costs, say the New Democrats. “This government says they are bringing in a modest surplus, but what they aren’t telling the public is that it’s the result of charging hard-working British Columbians more for things like Medical Service Premiums,” said New Democrat finance critic Mike Farnworth. “Families are already stretched to the limit when it comes to affording the basic necessities, yet this government thinks it’s completely acceptable to gouge hard-working people with increased fees across the board.” Farnworth was responding today to the release of Public Accounts from the 2013-14 financial year. The report shows that 86 per cent, or $303 million, of the government’s published surplus of $353 million was derived from an “Increase in fees and licenses.” “The fee increa
B.C. Liberal whitewash of Lottery CEO conflict not acceptable
The B.C. Liberal attempt to whitewash the departing B.C. Lottery Corporation CEO’s clear conflict of interest and golden deal on the taxpayers’ dime is not acceptable, say the New Democrats. “An internal Liberal government audit shows what any thoughtful person already knew: that Michael Graydon acted in clear conflict of interest when he negotiated a deal with his new employer, an affiliate of Paragon Gaming, starting two months before he told the BCLC board,” said New Democrat gaming critic Shane Simpson. “And when Graydon left his position, he was awarded approximately $125,000 in severance and vacation pay and performance bonuses, and was given his government laptop, iPhone, and iPad. This all happened when arguably he should have been fired with cause.” It is against the government’s own rules to give severance pay to an employee who quits their job, Simpson added. “Despite the findings of the audit, the Liberals have no interest in trying to recoup the money or
