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 !

Mike & Councillor Junker celebrated Glenayre’s 60th Anniversary with the Glenayre Community Association, who organized an awesome event in an even more awesome neighbourhood.

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?

Honoring a Tireless Voice for the Homeless

Mike was proud to honor Sandy Burpee, the long-time Chair of the Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group. Sandy spent thousands of hours advocating for the rights of the most vulnerable.

Port Moody is Committed to Adding Trails

Racing, running, or just rambling through the many trails in Port Moody, Mike is like the rest of us who take advantage of the awesome trail system and wonderful green spaces in our city.

Acting Mayor for the Day

It’s critical to get our young people interested in the democratic process. Mike was pretty happy to relinquish the Mayor Chair to his young Port Moody constituent.
