John Twigg discusses Adrian Dix and his winning of the BC NDP leadership, as well as other BC political matters, including the federal election, with Joseph Planta.
Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.
John Twigg is back. The political commentator has been providing TheCommentary.ca with his analysis of politics in this province and beyond. He joins me now to do the same. Last evening, the BC NDP elected Adrian Dix its new leader. He becomes the leader of the official opposition and will face the new BC Liberal Premier Christy Clark in an election that most predict will be sooner rather than later. John will provide his thoughts on the NDP’s leadership contest, where we go from here, as well we might touch on the current federal election campaign. John Twigg was press secretary to premier Dave Barrett, and a former interim leader of the BC Refederation Party. His analysis of the NDP leadership race from Friday is up elsewhere on this website. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, John Twigg; Good morning, Mr. Twigg.
