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

Celebrating the Evergreen Line

The TriCities Mayors were thrilled to be among the first riders on the newly-opened Evergreen (aka Millenium) Line.  Approximately 30,000 riders use this line daily.

Singing for Soroptimist

Mayor Mike and one of “The Three Divas” Polly Krier performed a crowd-pleasing lip sync to raise funds for Soroptimist, an organization benefitting women and girls.

Canada Day with Premier John Horgan

Canada Day celebrations at Rocky Point are a key part of Port Moody’s annual Golden Spike Days. Somehow Premier Horgan received an “I Love Port Moody” hat for the special occasion.

Getting Dunked for a Good Cause

Mike with MP Finn Donelly at the Golden Spike Days to raise funds for a local cheer squad. For some reason, there were a lot of willing participants tossing the balls at Finn and Mike.

Chairing the Port Moody Terry Fox Run

Mike is honored to have chaired the Port Moody Terry Fox Run for 5 years, as part of a tribute to a young man who believed we could all make a difference in the battle to defeat cancer.

Don’t Make Me Mad!

Paparazzi everywhere. Who wouldn’t want to interview the Hulk (also known as the Mayor) at one of the fun-filled events around town? What was the rest of Council wearing?
