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 ...

Bills pile up for B.C. families under Premier Christy Clark
Families right across British Columbia are left wishing it was an April Fools' Day joke as they face bigger bills delivered to their mailboxes starting April 1, say New Democrats. “Unfortunately it’s no joke – as of April 1, Premier Clark is jacking up your hydro bill another six per cent,” said New Democrat leader John Horgan. “Ms. Clark is bankrolling her tax cut for millionaires by grinding more money out of middle class families who are already squeezed.” New Democrat spokesperson on B.C. Hydro Adrian Dix noted the hit to people’s wallets from hydro bills. “The average B.C. Hydro residential bill will grow by another $70 this year. Larger families or people in rural areas will be on the hook for even more,” said Dix. “During the election, Christy Clark promised that she would keep hydro rates low. But right after, they announced a five year plan to hike rates by 28 per cent. Between Christy Clark becoming premier and the end of this plan, average families will
Prince George families struggling with Hydro rates, prospects for youth
New Democrat leader John Horgan and finance spokesperson Carole James were in Prince George today highlighting the struggle of families needing a break from the fees, fares and rate hikes imposed by Christy Clark in her 2015 budget. “What we’re hearing right here in Prince George is that Hydro rate hikes are burying people in the North,” said Horgan. “Families don’t have much of a choice about turning on the heat in the winter here. Even with a good paycheque it’s hard to keep up.” Prince George father Doug MacDonald is concerned about the future for his children. “I came here for a great opportunity and was able to save up, buy a house and raise a family. I don’t see that for my kids and grandkids. I see people having to leave their families behind to work elsewhere,” said MacDonald. “Young people are starting out their lives with student debt, higher costs for everything, and without the job prospects my generation had.” “We’re meeting with families in B.C
Spencer Chandra Herbert: Premier Christy Clark moving B.C. in wrong direction on climate change
Read Spencer Chandra Herbert's Earth Day op-ed from the Georgia Straight: On Earth Day, we are reminded our air, land, and water is the source of all life. We must safeguard these life support systems, not just for ourselves, but for future generations. The future of our way of life depends on the choices we make today and in the coming years. That’s why on Earth Day it’s important to recognize and confront what may be the greatest challenge that has ever faced humanity—global climate change. I believe that climate change is real and responding to climate change demands real action. That’s not a very controversial statement in 2015. Premier Christy Clark is willing to acknowledge that human activity is changing our atmosphere, even though some members of her caucus are still unconvinced. But sadly Premier Clark has reversed action taken by the previous premier, and is making climate change worse. John Horgan and B.C.’s New Democrats believe that real, positive action on clima
