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 ...

Surrey school funding flop shows Premier Christy Clark not listening to parents
VANCOUVER – The B.C. Liberal government’s weak response to school overcrowding in Surrey shows that Premier Christy Clark isn’t listening to the needs of parents and students when it comes to funding public education in B.C., said New Democrat Leader John Horgan on Friday. “As usual, Christy Clark is not listening to the needs of ordinary people. It looks like her plan is to continue starving public education for funding in Surrey and in communities all over B.C. We can do better for our kids and parents,” Horgan said. “Premier Christy Clark just told kids and parents in Surrey that she’s okay with leaving 4,500 students to learn in portables permanently. That’s not good enough. The people of Surrey need a provincial government that understands what matters most and acts in the interest of B.C. families.” Horgan said that the B.C. Liberal funding decision is too little, too late for public education in B.C.’s fastest growing city. “Surrey is adding another 1,000 s
Horgan says broken Kinder Morgan pipeline approval process not good enough for people of BC
VICTORIA — The rubber-stamp approval by the federal National Energy Board fails to meet the concerns of British Columbians about the proposed Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline project, New Democrat leader John Horgan said today. Horgan said the NEB report does not address the four key concerns he set out in opposing the proposed pipeline expansion project. “Nothing in this flawed process and proposal will lead us to change our opposition. This was Stephen Harper’s broken and unfair approval process, and Christy Clark hid behind it. British Columbians can’t help seeing this as a rubber-stamp approval that fails to meet the concerns we all have with this proposal,” Horgan said. “We’ll be reviewing the NEB recommendations, and we’ll be watching closely as the new federal panel and the court-ordered provincial panel complete the First Nations and community consultations neglected by the Harper process. “For B.C. New Democrats, there are four big concerns with this
One year after Truth and Reconciliation Commission, still no plan for Aboriginal children
VICTORIA – The Christy Clark government still has no plan to reduce the number of Aboriginal children in care in B.C. a year after the Truth and Reconciliation Commission called on all provincial governments to take action. “The Commission’s report was released one year ago, on June 2, yet despite the call for action we still have a situation where 60 per cent of children in care in B.C. are Aboriginal, and no plan from the Christy Clark government to stop taking these children from their families and their communities,” said New Democrat children and families spokesperson Doug Donaldson. “The number one call to action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission was for provincial governments to reduce the number of Aboriginal children in care. Yet, a year later, the Christy Clark government has still not addressed this over representation in our foster care system.” The 2016 service plan for the Ministry of Children and Family Development calls for the number of Aborigina
BC Liberals flip-flop on education funding, still no cheques for school boards
VICTORIA – John Horgan, leader of the New Democrats, issued the following statement in response to the Christy Clark government’s education announcement on Tuesday: “This is not about Christy Clark doing what’s right for parents and kids, this is all about Christy Clark trying to make bad headlines go away until after the election. “This is the least that Christy Clark could do. The least. This is not new funding and I think that parents and students will see through this cynical election ploy. “There are no cheques going to local school boards. All that the B.C. Liberals are saying is that they won’t be clawing back the $25 million that they were originally demanding from schools across B.C. “Barely a month ago, Christy Clark’s education minister was dismissing the concerns of thousands of parents across B.C. as ‘just a few vocal groups’ and standing in the legislature defending his government’s cuts to public education. “I’m so disappointed that this is w
