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 ...

Session that never happened shows Christy Clark campaigns when she should be putting British Columbians first
VICTORIA – At the end of what would have been a fall legislative session British Columbians are wondering why important issues such as the housing crisis and the fentanyl epidemic are not being dealt with by their government, says B.C. New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “This should have been the end of a productive fall session, but Christy Clark has been focused on her election campaign instead of the problems she's created by neglecting the most serious issues faced by people in the province," said Horgan. “British Columbians have been waiting a long time for action on issues like fentanyl and housing. “And they are going to have to keep waiting, because Christy Clark doesn’t want to do her job and she doesn’t want to be accountable for her failure to do her job.” Horgan noted that Christy Clark’s housing minister promised to fix a loophole in the residential tenancy act that allows landlords to raise rents above the maximum allowable rate – or even evict tenants wit
B.C.’s child poverty rate unacceptable, says Horgan
VANCOUVER – A report out today showing that child poverty in B.C. is consistently high and above the Canadian average is just one more symptom of a Christy Clark government that puts donors and party insiders before the best interests of British Columbians, said B.C. New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “One in five children in British Columbia live in poverty,” said Horgan. “It’s clear that when Christy Clark talks about things being good in B.C. – she means for her friends and donors, who got a billion dollar tax cut, not for families struggling to make ends meet.” Horgan noted that 50 per cent of children in single parent families live below the poverty line in B.C. – many of them parents who have seen the Christy Clark government claw back benefits like child support or subsidized bus passes over the last two years. Meanwhile the wealthiest two per cent of British Columbians got a billion dollar tax cut. “New Democrats are standing up for single-parent families – we
Horgan commits to ban grizzly bear trophy hunt
VANCOUVER – New Democrat leader John Horgan announced a New Democrat government will ban the trophy hunting of grizzly bears in British Columbia. “It’s time for some leadership here,” said Horgan. “We can look after our natural environment, respect the outdoor traditions of this province and grow the economy if we make the right choices. That should start now with a change in how we treat the iconic grizzly bears of B.C.” Horgan added, “This province has a proud outdoor heritage that includes hunting and fishing. We also have a future that includes welcoming the world to enjoy our spectacular scenery and wildlife, creating jobs for British Columbians and a tourism industry that is second to none. Our heritage and our future can thrive together if we make the right choices.” “The Coastal First Nations banned the grizzly trophy hunt in the Great Bear Rainforest four years ago. A provincial ban is long overdue to stop the needless killing of grizzly bears for sport. Griz
Clark government has failed to protect B.C. softwood interests, New Democrats say
VICTORIA – Friday’s announcement of potential sanctions against B.C. lumber show that Christy Clark has failed to make sure British Columbia’s interests are a priority for the federal government, say the New Democrats. The protectionist U.S. lumber lobby has asked the U.S. Department of Commerce to set in motion actions that could lead to duties on Canadian softwood. “Christy Clark assured workers and forest-dependent communities that she was going to personally intervene and make sure the federal government would get a new softwood lumber agreement with the U.S.,” said New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “Friday’s announcement from Washington shows this was just another in a long line of empty Christy Clark promises. “Premier Clark said she would get softwood on the federal agenda, just like she said she’d get a world-class oil spill response on the federal agenda, just like she said she’d get improved health transfer payments on the federal agenda. “The premier tal
