  1. The companies and people of Port Moody, providing outstanding leadership and those making a real difference in any endeavour, deserve to receive recognition; no question.

    IMHO, Port Moody continues to lack any real substantive economic development initiatives, and this is one major reason why we need some big changes at City Hall come election time.

    To tie up the brainpower of the Economic Development Committee appointees on such a task as the Spike Awards seems like a complete under utilization of these free volunteer resources.

    Perhaps it’s time for Port Moody to have a Civic Recognition Committee with a focused mandate, so other committees can focus on, and maybe expand the work plans. On the surface this would seem to be a more effective way to get committee business done.
