Dix clinches leadership of BC NDP


B.C. New Democrats have selected Adrian Dix as their new leader, embracing his agenda to reach out to disaffected voters as the key to defeating Liberal Premier Christy Clark in a provincial election that could come as early as this fall. The second-term MLA and onetime chief of staff under former NDP premier Glen Clark mapped out an agenda to raise taxes on banks and big corporations to finance social programs – an approach he said will sharply define the party from its Liberal rivals. He narrowly defeated Mike Farnworth, who had offered a more centrist vision for leadership, with ...

BC NDP Rejects Ignatieff's Call


The British Columbia New Democrats are rejecting federal Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff call for B.C. politicians to ask Prime Minister Stephen Harper questions about national issues during his historic visit to the legislature.

B.C. Liberals missed opportunity to appoint fully independent seniors advocate
VICTORIA – New Democrats are welcoming the long-awaited appointment of a seniors advocate, but say seniors in the province were denied a truly independent advocate. “Today the B.C. Liberals finally announced the appointment of a seniors advocate, which New Democrats have been calling for since 2007. There is a very real need for this position, as seniors across the province face both individual and systemic problems and struggle to get the care they need and deserve,” said New Democrat seniors critic Katrine Conroy. New Democrats introduced bills calling for a similar position in 2007, 2011 and 2013, but the B.C. Liberal government refused to implement them. Conroy says she is pleased to see the position finally being established, but pointed out the government stopped short of giving seniors a truly independent voice, and one that can investigate both individual and systemic problems. “Already we have seen today that this advocate is not empowered to look at individual issues

B.C. Liberals gutting community-based literacy programs
VICTORIA –The B.C. Liberals are gutting essential community-based literacy programs across B.C., making it harder for people to get the basic literacy skills they need to succeed, say the New Democrats. “Literacy programs are vital to helping children succeed in school and helping adults find and keep jobs,” said New Democrat education critic Rob Fleming. “And yet the Liberals are cutting funding for programs that tens of thousands of British Columbians depend on in more than 400 communities across the province.” Decoda Literacy Solutions, the network of community-based literacy providers that works throughout the province, said in a letter to the Minister of Education that their funding in the 2013/14 budget is being slashed from $2.5 million to $1 million, and they fear funding could be cut completely in the 2014/15 budget. At a press conference with community literacy workers in Victoria today, Fleming noted that these cuts were made even after the bi-partisan finance c
New Democrats call for legislation allowing electronic petitions
VICTORIA – New Democrats introduced legislation today that would make democratic participation more accessible in British Columbia. “Participation in our political process is at an all-time low, and we must do everything we can to prevent British Columbians from being left out,” said Jane Shin, New Democrat MLA for Burnaby-Lougheed, who introduced the bill. “The bill I introduced today would allow for the acceptance of electronic petitions in the House. This would modernize the longstanding practice of petitioning, and allow more people to participate.” Currently, only paper petitions are accepted in the legislature, since a physical signature is required. The Electronic Petitions Act would allow signatories to validate their identities by providing their name, email, phone number, and mailing address in lieu of a signature. “As well as improving accessibility, this change would also allow us to more easily authenticate petitions. Electronic petitions would more easily cat
