North Coast MLA offers up thoughts on Adrian Dix resignation

North Coast NDP MLA Jennifer Rice has offered up the first of her  thoughts on the resignation announcement last week by BC NDP leader Adrian Dix.

In an item in the QCI Observer this week, the North Coast MLA said that it was "sort of a sad day", but that the decision that Mr. Dix made was "the best thing for the party".

Ms. Rice made prominent use of Mr. Dix during her campaign in the recent provincial election, whether it was through print items, or multi media platforms, the now soon to be departing NDP leader was a key part of the NDP campaign on the North Coast.

Until the short article in the Observer which you can read here, the only other comment that the MLA had on the resignation of Mr. Dix was a short tweet she put out on her twitter feed last week.

In her remarks to the Observer, she made no mention of the start of the BC NDP leadership campaign and whether she had a personal short list of potential leaders for the party. Nor did she have any comment on  the speculation of a possible return of Nathan Cullen to British Columbia.

The North Coast MLA has had a fairly close working relationship with the NDP MP, having made many appearances at a number of functions with Mr. Cullen throughout the region over the last few years.

The NDP MP for Skeena-Bulkley Valley is one of four MP's from the province currently giving some thought to their political future in the wake of Mr. Dix's announcement of last week.

You can review some of that talk on the leadership angle from this item of earlier this week, for more items on the provincial political scene with the focus on the North Coast riding you can check out our Legislature archive.
