VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – With Adrian Dix now at the helm of the party, BC NDP members say solidarity problems are a thing of the past.
Party President Moe Sihota says the party has undergone some positive changes since Carole James was ousted, and the internal fractures they inherited are now healed.
While caucus chair Shane Simpson was rooting for John Horgan, he says he’s looking forward to moving forward with Adrian Dix. “We’ve been very focused on talking about moving forward, moving ahead, looking to win the next election. There is unanimity about that in the caucus.”
Dix was also quick to broach the all important subject of party unity. He says all his leadership rivals will have a place at his table. As for punishing the dissidents who forced this race, he feels it’s best to leave the “Baker’s Dozen” controversy firmly in the past.
