North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice calls the resignation of NDP leader Adrian Dix “the best thing for the party”, although she said it was sad to see him go. Mr. Dix resigned Sept. 18 following his party’s very poor showing in the May election. “It’s sort of a sad day as well,because I respect the man,” Ms Rice said, “he is a great leader.” But she added it is the best interest for the party moving forward. The New Democrats are expected to hold a leadership convention in mid-November.
