Ever wanted to bang the mayor's gavel and have people listen to your ideas?

A chance may be available on Canada Day in Port Moody — without the hassle of an election.

From 2 to 5 p.m. at Rocky Point Park during Golden Spike Days, contestants can vie to be "Mayor for a Minute."

Participants who take part will be videotaped and the winners with the best ideas will be awarded prizes at the July 8 council meeting. Awards will be handed out to minute-mayors 12 years and younger, teens 13 to 18, and adults.

Mayor Mike Clay will be on hand to hear the best ideas of Mayor for a Minute contestants.
