“Now more than ever, we need strong leadership from our community, for our community. Tim understands the importance of jobs, community safety and quality of life for young families in the riding, including the importance of a strong Canada standing up against terrorism. I’m proud to pass the torch to Tim Laidler as a new voice for the Tri-Cities.”

~ Honourable James Moore, Member of Parliament
Port Moody – Westwood – Port Coquitlam

Tim is an Afghanistan war veteran having served a decade in the Canadian Armed Forces. His military services and education combined with a strong business background and commitment to the community makes him the right candidate to represent the residents of Port Moody – Coquitlam.

Soon after Afghanistan, Tim transitioned from the military back into civilian life. This transition inspired him to found and develop the Veterans Transition Network (VTN), a national organization with private and public funding where he became the Executive Director.

Under Tim’s leadership, the Network strived to enhance the quality of life for veterans of war. He devoted countless hours in Ottawa presenting to select committees, meeting with ministers and key stakeholders to raise awareness of veteran issues.

Tim obtained an Associates Degree from Douglas College in Coquitlam, and later completed a BA in Political Science and a Masters of Counseling Psychology at UBC. In 2014, he was selected as UBC’s Young Alumnus of the Year. He has also been recognized for his community service by receiving the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal.

In this election, Canadians will make a critical decision about the direction of our country. This decision has real consequences. Voters must decide who has the proven experience today to keep our economy strong and our country safe.

I am running to make things better for families and seniors in the Tri-Cities. As a positive new voice for the Tri-Cities, I will stand up for the aspirations of families and seniors who want a safe and affordable community, infrastructure investment and a strong economy.

What I Stand For

I know that you care about your community and that you want to see strong representation that stands up for your local interests in Ottawa. I have knocked on thousands of doors and spoken with people in every neighbourhood across Port Moody and Coquitlam. I have listened to what is important to you and your family.

I keep hearing the same key themes on the doorstep:

Maintaining the quality and affordability of life in our community is important to everyone – from seniors to young families. The federal government is the only level of government that is reducing taxes. The Conservatives have cut taxes more than 150 times since forming government, saving the average Canadian family $3,220 a year. This July, the government put even more money back in the pockets of every single family by increasing and expanding the Universal Child Care Benefit (UCCB) to nearly $2,000 per year for every child under 6, and $720 per year for every child between 6 and 17. We must continue to keep taxes low and continue to implement family-friendly polices like the UCCB.

We need to enable more local jobs that support families in the Tri-Cities. To make this happen, we need increased international trade and programs like the Canada Apprenticeship Loan to support the next generation of skilled workers.

We need to keep investing in infrastructure that will strengthen the livability and sustainability of our community. The Conservative government has already invested $424 million to build the SkyTrain Evergreen Line, which created thousands of local construction jobs and millions of dollars in local spending. In July, the Conservative government announced a $500,000 investment to rehabilitate the Port Moody Recreation Complex building envelope.

The resource sector has long been the backbone of Canadian prosperity, and the port-oriented economy is the very reason that our beautiful and prosperous community exists. When I talk to people on the doorstep, I have heard many variations on the same theme: they support resource development, but it must be done responsibly, in accordance with our values and with benefits flowing to our communities. I will stand up forcefully for rigorous regulation and stringent safety standards to make sure that we keep our community safe as we grow the economy.

Our riding is home to the two beautiful Cities of Coquitlam and Port Moody, as well as the villages of Anmore and Belcarra in the heart of Metro Vancouver.

Our riding is home to numerous sites of interest and businesses including:

  • Sasamat Lake and White Pine Beach

  • Belcarra Regional Park
  • Port Moody Station Museum
  • Maillardville
  • Hard Rock Casino
