B.C. NDP Leader Adrian Dix has announced his resignation as party leader today in Vancouver, following the party's surprising defeat by the Liberals in the May provincial election.[/color]
Dix said he accepted responsibility for the election loss and felt it was in the best interests of the party for a new leader to take over.
“Since our defeat in the election on May 14, I have reflected both on my future as leader of the B.C. NDP and on the future of our party.

- Adrian Dix to stay on as B.C. NDP leader despite election loss
“It has become clear to me that the best interests of our party mean that I need to step aside for a new leader, who can lead us to victory in 2017
Dix said he intends to stay on as the party leader until a new leader is selected sometime in 2014.
The irony about him staying on until 2014 is that because of Christy Clark's grueling work ethic....he probably won't even sit in the house as it won't be in session.
36 days in a calendar year they've worked under Clark....Bravo at an average of $75,000 a year each per MLA
