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 ...

BC New Democrats energized by weekend of campaign training and strategy in Penticton
A new generation of BC NDP volunteers are hitting the ground running in every corner of the province after two days of modern campaign training in Penticton on the weekend. “I’m so excited about the momentum our party is building,” said Leader John Horgan. “I met so many young and talented NDP volunteers in Penticton this weekend, and I know that our party has the energy to offer a hopeful vision of making life better for hardworking BC families.” The training featured presentations by Obama strategists Mitch Stewart and Lynda Tran that detailed the latest tactics in grassroots organizing and communications. BC NDP President Craig Keating believes the weekend training was a significant step towards defeating Christy Clark and electing John Horgan as premier. “This training weekend was the first step in a new direction for the NDP,” said Keating. “John Horgan is committed to making the next campaign the smartest and most sophisticated in NDP history, and the cutting edge
John Horgan launches campaign to give families a break instead of Christy Clark’s tax cut for top 2%
BC NDP Leader John Horgan and Finance Spokesperson Carole James are campaigning to give BC families a break, starting with asking British Columbians where they most need a break from rising fees imposed by Christy Clark in her 2015 budget. “At a time when more and more families are being squeezed by higher costs, Christy Clark in her 2015 budget chose to give millionaires a bonus while making everyone else pay for it with more fees,” said Horgan. “Instead of choosing millionaires, we should be giving hardworking BC families a break. The BC Liberals are out of touch. We can do much better, and it starts with listening to British Columbians.” People can add their voice at www.BCNeedsaBreak.ca, and NDP volunteers will be knocking on doors to ask people where they could use a break the most. “BC families are working hard, but with rising costs, it’s difficult to get ahead,” said Horgan. “I want to know where families most need help. Is it Hydro bills, car insurance, MSP, o
Christy Clark ignores families, gives top income earners a break
While B.C. families are paying more for everything and wages aren’t keeping up, Christy Clark has chosen to give a $230 million tax break to B.C.’s top 2 percent of income earners, says New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “This government is out of touch with real life for B.C. families. Today, Premier Christy Clark showed she doesn’t even know who is hurting and who needs a break. She offered no comfort for British Columbians who are struggling to get by, but she is going to cut taxes for British Columbians who make $150,000 or more,” said New Democrat leader John Horgan. Under the B.C. Liberal government, the medical services tax has doubled, Hydro rate hikes will reach 80 percent, ferry fares and camping fees are up, while wages aren’t keeping pace. “Families are paying more and getting less. People can’t find a family doctor, are struggling to get adequate seniors care, and the schools and hospitals they depend on are underfunded,” said Horgan. At the same time, pa
Budget 2015: $230 million tax break for the top 2%, paid for by BC families
British Columbians already stretched to their limit will face more fee and rate hikes in 2015, continue to get less in services, and pay for Premier Clark’s tax cut to the highest paid British Columbians as a result of the B.C. Liberals’ budget. “Families are already struggling – their costs are going up and their wages are flat. As if it isn’t enough that families are being nickeled and dimed by rates and fare hikes, they are going to pay to give a break to British Columbians who need it least,” said New Democrat spokesperson on finance Carole James. James said low and middle income earners need a break, but are instead facing another four-per-cent hike to MSP premiums, a six-per-cent hike to hydro rates, ferry fare hikes, higher tolls, park fees and ICBC rates. “BC wages aren’t keeping up. In fact they’re falling in real terms,” said New Democrat Leader John Horgan. “Instead of giving a break to families who are struggling, the B.C. Liberals singled out the to
