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

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.

Volunteering at Crossroads Hospice

Crossroads Hospice Society provides compassionate care to those affected by the end-of-life experience. Mike has supported this amazing organization with many hours of volunteer service.

Metro Vancouver Leadership

Mike has a number of responsibilities with Metro Vancouver, including chairing the Housing Committee and serving on the Electoral Area and Utilities Committees.

Plunging into the New Year

Every year, hundreds of participants rush crazily into the Burrard Inlet to commemorate the new year at the Penguin Plunge. Someone in this photo needs a haircut. It’s not the dog.

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.

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?
