A juice man running for a seat on Port Moody council is hoping to squeeze more votes than his previous attempt.

Callan Morrison, who runs Squish Juicery in Port Coquitlam but lives in NewPort Village, finished 11th out of 14 candidates in the 2014 civic election.

This fall's vote, though, "is the most important election for the future of our city," Morrison said, adding he's chosen to run again believing "positive change is needed to reconnect our community and bring confidence and respect back to local government."

In addition to making and selling cold-pressed juice with his personal and business partner, Jessica Clark, Morrison has also worked in commercial and retail real estate, as well as a finance manager for various auto dealerships.

In the community, Morrison has coached minor lacrosse for 14 years and he’s volunteered on several civic committees, including parks and recreation, arts and culture, as well as the advisory design panel (ADP).

In a campaign statement, Morrison calls Port Moody is "the best city in the world," but claims there needs to be "major change," in the composition of council to make the City of the Arts "even better."

"Our residents need a council that is devoted to putting Port Moody residents first."

Morrison is the fifth known candidate to publicly announce their intention to seek a seat at Port Moody council in the upcoming municipal vote — set for Oct. 15, 2022.

He joins Haven Lurbiecki, Richard Biedka, Johann Contreras and Kyla Knowles, and none of the council’s incumbents have formally announced their bids for reelection, as of this publication (July 26).

For more information on Morrison and his platform you can visit his campaign website.

You can contact Morrison directly by email: [email protected].

As well, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a series of all-candidates debates for local 2022 civic elections.

Port Moody mayor and council nominees will get the chance to speak to the issues that matter to them, and take questions from the public, at the Inlet Theatre on Sept. 28.
