B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix completed his tour of the Interior Wednesday night at the Interior Savings Centre in Kamloops with a rally in support of local candidates Tom Friedman and Kathy Kendall.

"Today is a great day," Dix said, "today advance voting polls opened. Remind everyone you know to go out and vote - there are just six days left."

Rally cries of  'shame, shame' filled the room as Dix spoke to about 150 supporters about the broken promises of the Liberal party under Premier Christy Clark. With vows of taking care of all British Columbians not just ones who vote NDP Dix led the impassioned group through nearly 30 minutes of what he called the downside of the past 12 years under Liberal leadership in B.C.

Dix also made stops in Summerland, Kelowna and Vernon Wednesday, making promises of better healthcare in Vernon and Kamloops and slamming the "smear ads" he says the Liberal Party has been putting out to try and sway voters.
