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 Approved LNG Projects Meet Four Key Principles that Benefit British Columbians
Any LNG projects developed in BC should only be allowed to proceed if they expressly guarantee good-paying jobs and training opportunitiesfor BC workers, and benefits for families and communities in every part of the province, said BC New Democrat leader John Horgan in his speech to the Union of BC Municipalities today in Whistler. The jobs and training guarantee is one of four guiding principles Horgan laid out for any LNG projects to move forward in British Columbia. And he’s calling on the Clark government to make sure each proponent commits to these principles, or move on to the next proposal. Horgan’s second principle call for British Columbians to receive a fair return for the resource that belongs to them. Third, that government respects and makes partners of First Nations and recognizes their right to a share in any the benefits that may flow from LNG. Finally, that our air, water and land must be protected, and British Columbia’s LNG industry must be the cleanest it can
Premier’s words cannot be trusted – she is failing to ensure responsible LNG development can move forward
While Premier Christy Clark certainly knew what to say about B.C.’s LNG potential, she has not done what is needed in order to ensure responsible LNG development moves forward, said New Democrat leader John Horgan and spokesperson for natural gas development Bruce Ralston. “Even though Premier Clark and the B.C. Liberals are completely pre-occupied with LNG to the exclusion of other important economic sectors, they are failing to do what’s needed to ensure responsible development of B.C.’s LNG potential,” said New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “The premier gave away a strong bargaining position when she promised total debt elimination, a fantasy fund of billions of dollars and 100,000 jobs when LNG plants are up and running starting in 2015,” said Horgan. “That sent a clear message to potential investors that her Liberal government would become desperate for a deal, putting British Columbia in a weaker bargaining position and threatening our ability to ensure a fair ret
Apology from B.C. Liberals victory for family of fired researcher
New Democrat leader John Horgan released the following statement on the B.C. Liberals' apology to the family of fired health researcher Roderick MacIsaac: “After being put through an unbearable tragedy, this apology is a victory for Mr. MacIsaac’s family. Both Linda and Doug Kayfish persisted against a government that repeatedly showed it didn’t care about how their negligent actions ruined the lives of so many people. “I’m proud to have played a small part in working with Linda and Doug to ensure the government couldn't continue to cover up this flagrant abuse of power, or continue to ignore the devastating results of their actions. “Without the bravery of Linda and her family, and our persistence working with them to hold Christy Clark and the Liberal government to account, this long-overdue apology might never have come. “I welcome the third-party review announced by the government as a result of the work of Roderick’s family, but we will be watching it closely to e
B.C. Liberals shouldn’t cancel Christmas dinner in care homes
he B.C. Liberal government must reverse a health authority policy restricting visiting family members from joining seniors in care homes for Christmas dinner, said New Democrat leader John Horgan. “There is a simple solution to this bad policy: end it,” said Horgan. “What kind of misguided government would allow this to happen? Seniors deserve to have Christmas dinner with their families. What were the B.C. Liberals thinking?” A letter from Island Health acknowledges that “in years past we used to cater to all of the residents families and have large bustling excellent tasting meals and great festivities.” But the letter then goes on to not only restrict each senior to only one guest for Christmas dinner, but also to limit the total number of guests in North Island care homes to 12, meaning most residents would not even be allowed a single family member to join them for Christmas dinner. As the letter itself says, “We allow 1 invited guest per resident to a maximum of 10-
