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 ...

BC New Democrats take action to include all British Columbians in the economy
VICTORIA – At a time when many British Columbians are seeing B.C. Liberal policies benefit only the rich, New Democrats are introducing legislation aimed at tackling poverty and creating economic inclusion in the province. If passed, the Poverty Reduction and Economic Inclusion Act would mandate government to develop a poverty reduction strategy within one year, and legislate specific targets and timelines to reduce poverty and the impact it has on families. “Record high food bank usage, many seniors unable to afford shelter, and stubbornly high child poverty rates show that our economy is not benefiting many B.C. families,” said Michelle Mungall, B.C. New Democrat spokesperson for social development. “We clearly need legislation that will result in government action and accountability.” This will be the fifth time since 2011 that B.C. New Democrats have introduced legislation to tackle poverty. Mungall noted that if the B.C. Liberals had passed the act earlier, policies such
BC New Democrats celebrate Earth Day
VICTORIA – B.C. New Democrat leader John Horgan released the following statement in advance of Earth Day on April 22: “Earth Day is an opportunity to remind ourselves of our shared duty to protect the air, land, and water of British Columbia. That means committing to a real plan to address climate change. It means taking action to protect habitat for B.C.’s wildlife. And it means standing up to a government that is failing in its duty to protect our clean water. “In Shawnigan Lake, the Christy Clark government is putting the drinking water of more than 12,000 people at risk by allowing a company to dump 100,000 tonnes of contaminated soil uphill from the community’s water source. In Spallumcheen, the Christy Clark government is allowing a farm operation to spray liquid manure on property above the local aquifer, causing a water-quality advisory to be issued for the community. In Prince Rupert and many other communities throughout British Columbia, there are widespread concern
New Democrat statement on the Day of Mourning
VICTORIA – John Horgan, leader of the B.C. New Democrats, issued the following statement on the Day of Mourning for B.C. workers who have lost their lives on the job: “Today we will lower the flag at the B.C. legislature to half-mast. And inside the legislature, MLAs will observe a moment of silence. “I feel a heaviness that comes with knowing how many others join us in observing the annual Day of Mourning, because they have colleagues, friends and loved ones whose lives were cut short or forever marked by workplace accidents. It is my sincere wish to say: I wish none of us had to suffer these tragedies. “Each week in B.C., roughly four workers lose their lives and another 125 sustain permanent injuries. “As much as this is a day to remember those who have lost their lives on the job, it is also a call to protect the living. We the New Democrats are honouring the Day of Mourning by reaffirming our commitment to prevent future workplace fatalities, life-altering injuries and o
New Democrats seek provincial honour for military service
VICTORIA – Maurine Karagianis, New Democrat MLA for Esquimalt-Royal Roads, re-introduced a bill today that would create a provincial honour for British Columbians who have served in our country’s military. “This bill would create the Military Service Pin that would recognize British Columbian men and women who have served in wartime, dangerous peacekeeping missions and vital domestic operations abroad and here in our own nation or province,” said Karagianis. British Columbians who are current or retired members of the regular or reserved armed forces would receive a certificate signed by the Lieutenant Governor, as well as a pin intended to be worn on civilian clothing. Veterans visited the legislature today to show their support for the bill. “This Military Service Pin symbolizes the gratitude of the Crown and the people of British Columbia for those who have served with honour and valour,” said Karagianis. This honour was first introduced in Saskatchewan and has since bee
