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 ...

Parents, advocacy groups, and New Democrats celebrate the end of a clawback
VICTORIA – Nearly 6000 children will finally keep their child support payments because parents, advocacy groups and New Democrats pressured the B.C. Liberals to stop clawing back their much needed support. “If it wasn’t for families stepping forward to share their struggles publicly, the Liberal government would have continued taking child support money that rightfully belonged to kids,” said Michelle Mungall, New Democrat spokesperson for social development. “Ending this harmful policy is an important step towards reducing child poverty across the province.” Mungall successfully worked with families and advocates for more than a year, calling on the Liberals to end the child support clawback that took $13 million from children whose parents received social assistance. The policy was changed earlier this year, and takes effect on Sept 1. “This was a hard fought battle, but there are still other clawbacks that contribute to child poverty,” said Mungall, “We hope that
British Columbians working for minimum wage deserve better, says NDP
VICTORIA – New Democrat spokesperson for Economic Development, Jobs, Labour and Skills, Shane Simpson, released the following statement on the dismal $0.20 increase to the minimum wage that went into effect Tuesday: “For British Columbians feeling squeezed by endless rate hikes and fee increases under Premier Christy Clark, her dismal $0.20 increase to the minimum wage will barely make a dent. British Columbians deserve better. “People working full time jobs should not be living in in poverty, yet the current minimum wage still leaves full-time workers $6,000 below the poverty line. These people are working hard but barely making it by financially. “New Democrats understand that families are facing financial challenges in their daily lives and that British Columbians deserve an economy where everyone benefits, not just the people at the top. "The $0.20 increase is paltry by anyone's standards. Reducing inequality needs to be a priority, but Premier Clark isn’t there for B
British Columbians deserve better than the premier’s four years of broken LNG promises
This week marks the four-year anniversary of Christy Clark’s broken LNG promises. In September 2011, the premier began promising that LNG would bring a windfall of jobs and riches to the province and that an LNG plant would be up-and-running by 2015. Christy Clark Promise: “At least one LNG pipeline and terminal online by 2015 and have three in operation by 2020” (B.C. Jobs Plan, September 2011) Fact: Since then, not one single LNG plant has been built in British Columbia and not one single proposal has reached a final investment decision. Christy Clark’s only accomplishment on LNG has been to sign a project development agreement with Petronas that locks in low tax rates for 25-years. Christy Clark Election Promise: The premier said “It’s No fantasy,” claiming the plants promised in 2011 “mean 39,000 jobs to British Columbia during construction with another 75,000 full time jobs created once in operation.” (BC Liberal Party 2013 Platform) Fact: The Petronas LNG projec
Op-ed: Labour Day Means Supporting Workers Every Day
By New Democrat spokesperson on labour Shane Simpson Labour Day is a day to celebrate the achievements of working people, and to renew our efforts to make things better. B.C.’s New Democrats are dedicated to making changes that support workers, ensuring they have good working conditions and get paid a fair wage. Labour Day has its origins in the union movement’s fight for the eight-hour work day. Throughout their history and still today, labour unions have fought to raise the standard of living for their members, which pulls up the wages and working conditions for everybody else, and have also fought for social legislation that helps everyone. For example, because of programs like universal health care and old age retirement, today we’re thankful that Canadians know there’s a safety net to take care of us when we get sick or too old to work. Unions and the New Democrats worked together to create these government programs, and we’re still working together to protect and expand
