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 ...

Protection for LGBTQ youth should have come sooner, say New Democrats
VICTORIA – After years of advocating for B.C. schools to have explicit policies to protect LGBTQ youth, the B.C. Liberals finally relented and announced changes, say New Democrats. “LGBTQ youth face much higher rates of violence, bullying and suicide and need help to succeed in our schools. But for years while New Democrats were advocating for protections for these vulnerable youth, Christy Clark said no, even though other provinces were taking the lead,” said New Democrat MLA Spencer Chandra Herbert. After years of pressure put on by New Democrats led by the efforts of Chandra Herbert, along with advocates, the government finally announced it will put in the necessary policies to ensure that LGBTQ youth in schools are protected. “For years Christy Clark’s government said that protections for sexual orientation was not an issue. Had she put these protections in earlier we could have protected many young people from violence and bullying,” said Chandra Herbert. “With the e
Premier offers little substance to First Nations Gathering
VICTORIA – A gathering of B.C.’s First Nations leaders and the government offered little in the way of substance from Premier Christy Clark, say the B.C. New Democrats. Designed to create open dialogue between the Crown and First Nations, the meeting left many in attendance feeling like Christy Clark is simply out of touch. “Christy Clark has promised to work on reconciliation before and her failure to live up to those promises is not lost on anyone,” said B.C. New Democrat leader John Horgan. “She either doesn’t listen or doesn’t care.” “Christy Clark thinks throwing a little money at an economic development strategy will fix everything, but reconciliation will only be born of respect,” said Scott Fraser, New Democrat spokesperson for aboriginal relations and reconciliation, who attended the gathering. “Many of these leaders feel they are not respected and with good reason. Their children and families aren’t getting the support they need. Their opposition to Si
BC Liberals promise schools, deliver empty lots
COQUITLAM – The empty lot where Burke Mountain’s new middle school should be is evidence that Christy Clark isn’t there for families in growing B.C. communities, says New Democrat leader John Horgan. “Christy Clark first promised schools in Burke Mountain in 2002. Here we are, 14 years later, still looking at an empty lot. That’s the value of Christy Clark’s promises,” said Horgan. “We should be supporting growing communities in our province, but instead, students in places like Coquitlam are going to school in overcrowded classrooms and learning in portables. The B.C. Liberals have starved our education system and utterly failed to plan for growing schools, and kids are paying the price.” Christy Clark first made schools in Burke Mountain a priority in 2002. But today, parents and kids are still waiting. “It’s not just Coquitlam that’s seeing these problems. In Surrey, 7,000 kids are learning in portables. Incredibly, Christy Clark’s education minister actual
Christy Clark leaves children in mental health crisis facing 200-day waitlist
VANCOUVER – A report from the Representative for Children and Youth shows that the Christy Clark government is failing children and families in mental health crisis, say B.C. New Democrats. “In Christy Clark’s B.C. vulnerable children are not a priority. It’s even worse for Aboriginal children, who are forced to navigate fragmented services which often have higher waitlists than the services targeted towards other children,” said New Democrat leader John Horgan. “It’s like a game of snakes and ladders, families move up a ladder, only to be sent tumbling back down to square one,” added New Democrat spokesperson for children and families Melanie Mark. The representative’s report, Tragedy in Waiting: How B.C.’s mental health system failed one First Nations youth, reveals a system struggling to offer basic services to children in need through the story of a child who committed suicide after he was unable to access basic mental health services. “Every parent hopes th
