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 ...

Tragedy increasingly likely as Maple Ridge tent city marks second month
MAPLE RIDGE – Close to 100 British Columbians have been living in a makeshift tent city in Maple Ridge for almost two months, creating dangerous and unhealthy conditions for themselves and local residents, and threatening the future of a small business. “There is simply no excuse for two months of inaction while the community of Maple Ridge faces an acute crisis,” said David Eby, New Democrat spokesperson for housing. “Vulnerable people attract predators. Sanitation and running water is limited here, and confrontation with angry residents is inevitable. Many of these tent city residents have complex health and addiction problems. Lives are at risk and the minister and local MLAs are completely absent.” Eby says the tent city has lingered because the minister responsible for housing seems to think he has solved homelessness in British Columbia. On May 5 in the legislature, Minister Rich Coleman described B.C.’s housing strategy as “the most successful housing strategy in N
B.C. needs real defence from invasive species
VICTORIA – B.C. New Democrats introduced legislation to ensure British Columbia is protected from the devastation invasive species such as Zebra and Quagga mussels have brought to communities across North America. “British Columbia is home to 20,000 freshwater lakes and 750,000 kilometres of river,” said New Democrat environment advocate Spencer Chandra Herbert. “Invasive species, once introduced, would devastate these ecosystems and harm our communities that depend on them. If enacted, this legislation would stop invasive species at our borders dead in their tracks before they become a threat to our way of life in British Columbia.” Chandra Herbert introduced the Protecting our Lakes and Economy from Invasive Species Act in the legislature Thursday. The private members bill, based on successful legislation in Alberta, would create mandatory inspection stations at B.C.’s provincial borders where inspectors would check water craft for invasive species, and detain them if inf
Horgan thanks Jenny Kwan for years of dedication as she steps down as MLA
VICTORIA – Jenny Kwan, New Democrat MLA for Vancouver-Mt. Pleasant, has tendered her resignation to the Speaker of the legislature effective immediately. Kwan has secured the nomination to run as a candidate for Vancouver East in the upcoming federal election. “Over the past 19 years Jenny has been a groundbreaker and inspiration to many,” said New Democrat leader John Horgan. “On behalf of our caucus, I want to thank her from the bottom of our hearts for the contributions she’s made to British Columbia and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.” Kwan has worked in East Vancouver for the last 25 years, from being a lone opposition councillor in the City of Vancouver, to being a cabinet minister, to being one of just two Opposition MLAs holding 77 BC Liberals to account. Kwan extends her deep gratitude to the people of Vancouver Mt. Pleasant for their trust, support and encouragement. “It has been a tremendous honour to serve the people of Vancouver Mt. Pleasant
B.C. Liberals second guess their own decision to raise craft beer prices
VICTORIA — It’s no surprise that the B.C. Liberals are second guessing themselves after their policy changes caused the price of craft beer to spike, says B.C New Democrat liquor spokesperson David Eby. “Craft beer is an important and growing industry in British Columbia that needs to be supported. The Attorney General’s changes have essentially introduced a new craft beer tax that hurts these small businesses and this growing industry,” said Eby. “The breweries are not receiving a penny more from the Liquor Distribution Branch despite consumers paying as much as 10 or even 20 per cent more for some craft beer products.” Industry leaders and the New Democrats warned the government that their policy change to the wholesale price system would increase prices, but the B.C. Liberals pressed ahead with the change. Prices spiked shortly after, causing craft brewers to initiate a series of meetings with their local MLAs over the last two months. Following those meetings, Ministe
