In the Community
It’s been my pleasure to join thousands of Port Moody families enjoying free and low-cost events around town. Whether you’re a foodie, a heritage buff, a music lover, or just a parent looking for something fun to do with the kids – there is truly something for everyone in Port Moody. And with the Farmer's Market, the Night Market, Brewer’s Row, and the many other businesses in Port Moody, it’s easy to shop local, work local, play local—and celebrate local.
As Mayor, I've been pleased to work with community groups, Council, and city staff to support a variety of new festivals and events that we hope will become Port Moody classics: Car-free Day, Food Truck Festival, Inlet Regatta, Ribfest, Search for the Perfect Pint, Ugly Christmas Sweater Dash.
I love being part of Port Moody and the many organizations that make Port Moody and our neighbouring cities thrive.
Mayor Mike as the City Spokesperson
The Mayor’s role is to serve as the head of the municipal council and to act as CEO of the City, including presiding over Council meetings and speaking at City and community events.
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.
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.
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?
International Women’s Day
Every year the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce holds a special event to a celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

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.
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.
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.
