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 ...

Horgan demands BC Liberal apology for insensitive residential school comments
VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark must demand that Boundary-Similkameen MLA, Linda Larson, apologizes to First Nations people for her insensitive and offensive comments regarding the history of residential schools in British Columbia, says B.C. New Democrat Leader John Horgan. During a health parliamentary committee hearing late last week, Larson asked: “How long do you think before the legacy of those residential schools finally burns itself out of the First Nations people?” “A question like that reveals remarkable insensitivity on the part of an elected representative toward the tragic experiences suffered by First Nations people in B.C. residential schools,” Horgan said. “We should never forget what happened, so that we can ensure nothing like that ever happens again. Premier Christy Clark should immediately ask her MLA, Linda Larson, to apologize for her offensive and insensitive comments.” Horgan pointed out that Larson is the premier’s parliamentary secretary for r
Housing affordability in Kamloops ignored by Christy Clark government, says New Democrat leader John Horgan
KAMLOOPS – People in Kamloops know it is getting harder to find affordable housing, and New Democrat leader John Horgan says that’s because the Christy Clark government ignored the problem until it spiraled out of control. “Here in Kamloops, people are telling me their biggest concern right now is affordability. I’m hearing that it’s really hard to find affordable housing to rent, let alone buy.” Horgan visited Kamloops Wednesday, and spoke with media alongside residents and activists concerned about the availability of affordable housing in the region. “Christy Clark let the market spiral out of control, and now she’s trying to look like she’s doing something – but her foreign buyers’ tax won’t make housing more affordable for people here in Kamloops,” said Horgan. “People all across this province are struggling to buy their first homes, scrambling to find space for growing families, and being squeezed by ballooning costs and low availability of rental home
Billion dollar blunder at BC Hydro means families will pay the price
VICTORIA – Families will face massive hydro rate hikes after the Christy Clark government secretly added more than $1 billion dollars to BC Hydro’s debt last year. “Just after the last election, Premier Christy Clark surprised families across B.C. with a staggering 28 per cent hydro rate hike,” said New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “By missing their debt reduction plan by more than $1 billion dollars, BC Hydro and the Christy Clark government could saddle ratepayers with another $500 hike each right after the next election.” According to BC Hydro’s latest annual report, the crown corporation was $1.1 billion off target for a major debt, primarily due to a huge overestimation of domestic revenue for power. “The current rate hikes were based on a plan that didn’t expect that extra billion dollars in debt, which means that there is an inevitable day of reckoning to come,” said New Democrat spokesperson on BC Hydro Adrian Dix. “That billion dollar blunder breaks d
Christy Clark puts fundraising chief first, affordability for British Columbians last
Vancouver – New Democrats are demanding answers from Premier Christy Clark about why her chief B.C. Liberal Party fundraiser had details about the new tax on foreign real estate buyers weeks before other British Columbians. “Premier Clark put the interests of one of her biggest donors and the head of her fundraising efforts for the B.C. Liberal Party ahead of the interests of all British Columbians struggling to afford real estate, and ahead of other real estate businesses in the province. It’s appalling,” said David Eby, New Democrat spokesperson for housing. Eby has written to Premier Clark demanding answers about how and why Bob Rennie has insider information about the new tax weeks before British Columbians were told about it on July 25. “British Columbians struggling to buy or rent a home deserve answers. Other real estate professionals dealing with this sudden change deserve answers. When did Mr. Rennie know about the new tax exactly? Who told him? And why? Was it in re
