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 ...

Independent investigation of Mount Polley a good first step
The B.C. Liberal decision to appoint a panel to conduct an independent investigation of the Mount Polley tailings pond failure is a good first step says New Democrat mining spokesperson Norm Macdonald. "A fully independent investigation is a good first step to restoring public confidence in our mining industry. We're glad to see this panel appointed," said Macdonald. "However, we remain concerned that the minister continues to claim his ministry is not at fault. We are also disappointed that the B.C. Liberal government continues to refuse to release documents related to this mine to the public. "All documents related to the safety of this mine and its tailing pond need to be released immediately, and as they are uncovered. We asked for the basic mine permit almost two weeks ago and haven’t received it, and we know the Olding report sat on the minister's desk for 3 years and still hasn't been released to the public. That approach isn’t going to fly this time around." Macdonald sai
B.C. Liberals hurting families with kids with special needs by dragging on school closures
The B.C. Liberals’ failure to get children back into classrooms is disproportionately hurting families of children with special needs, say B.C.’s New Democrats. “The B.C. Liberals’ failure to get a deal with teachers means students with special needs are going to suffer because they’re not in school where they belong and can’t get the support they need,” said Judy Darcy, MLA for New Westminster. “It hurts the families of these children too, who are not being provided with options for the special care their children need while schools remain closed,” said Darcy. Darcy was joined by Anne Bélanger, a local mother of a child with special needs, on Thursday to speak about how her family would be affected. Bélanger’s 8-year-old son requires a high level of care in childcare and in school. When school is in session, he has the support of an Education Assistant. In the summer, he attends full-day care where the government pays for the extra costs associated with her son
Education minister neglecting families and playing politics with education
The B.C. Liberals must focus on getting children back in school instead of making things worse by finger-pointing in media interviews, say B.C.’s New Democrats. “Instead of developing a substantive proposal for addressing class size and composition levels, Liberal Education Minister Peter Fassbender is threatening even more chaos in our education system by pointing fingers at others,” said New Democrat education spokesperson Rob Fleming. “What we need from the Liberals is leadership and solutions, not more confrontation and blame that could lead to our students being shut out of schools for even longer.” With a Sept. 2 school start date looming, Fleming said the Liberals need to finally put families first, not politics. “Just a week ago, the B.C. Liberals agreed to a media blackout over negotiations, and now the Minister of Education is violating it with inflammatory and damaging remarks,” said Fleming. In media interviews Thursday, the Minister took no responsibility for
B.C. Liberals make reckless cuts to anti-gang unit, major crimes investigators
The B.C. Liberals are recklessly cutting more than $4 million from critically important police services including major crimes investigators and an anti-gang unit say the B.C. New Democrats. “These reckless B.C. Liberal cuts will hinder law enforcement in their efforts to crack down on motorcycle gangs and other criminal gangs and leave more murders and missing persons cases unsolved,” said New Democrat public safety spokesperson Mike Farnworth. “The Liberal government claims to be concerned about gang violence and missing persons, but the truth is they are trying to walk away from both issues by removing funding.” The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s (CFSEU) budget is being slashed by $2.8 million, while major crimes investigation, which handles murders and missing persons cases is being slashed by $1.4 million. “We have the most unsolved cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women in the country – and the B.C. Liberal response is to slash the budget for
