I’m proud to be a Port Moody native, the best city in the World !

I grew up here and deeply cherish the City’s history, so it is an honour for me to help lead Port Moody into the future.

Like you, I love Port Moody and that’s why I continue to advocate for a strong community that embraces change and remains the most amazing city.

I served on Port Moody Council for 13 years - Councillor from 2005-2011 and Mayor from 2011-2018.   I am proud to have a led a Council and Staff team that delivered many community enhancements and planned responsibly for the future, and the work that I did in the region with our neighbouring municipalities.

I am committed to a livable, accessible city with vibrant public spaces, healthy neighbourhoods, sustainable mobility, a diverse and resilient local economy, and an affordable housing market.  And to celebrate our Arts and Culture and support our designation as 'City of the Arts'.

The world is changing at a rapid rate, and I believe strongly that it is important to embrace change, not deny it, and to move forward !

In the Community

You Never Know Who’s at the Library

Pirates, puppets, and pyjamas. A perfect day for Mike to read with the kids at Port Moody Library. One of Mike’s favorite activity is giving out those summer reading medals.

Supporting Wigs for Kids BC

Mike, Constable Rob, and Constable Jenn – two of Port Moody’s finest – spent the afternoon with some amazing kids raising funds to help other kids who’ve lost their hair due to illness.

Breaking Ground for Affordability

Mike is Chair of Metro Vancouver’s Housing Committee and was pleased to break ground in 2018 for Heather Place with Minister of Housing Selina Robinson and other mayors in the region.

Keeping our Shoreline Clean

Mike takes part in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a national program encouraging us to take action wherever water meets land, one bit of trash at a time.

Mike and the Share Bear

Mike volunteers with Share Society, a community organization dedicated to connecting, engaging, and strengthening individuals and families. Plus, who doesn’t like a bear hug?

2017 Car-Free Day Draws 20K Pedestrians

Mike’s vision of Port Moody’s first Car-Free Day was realized August 2017. St.Johns Street was bustling with fun, food, and festivities for all. Will you be at the 2018 Car-Free Day?
