Christopher Mark Coleman

Independent for Victoria Council


submitted by the candidate or their team

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
Victoria has embraced "spectacular politics" but moved away from "good governance". Politics divides....good governance binds together.

I'm an experienced 6-term Councillor, an Executive Board member with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities & a collaborative team player

I have two decades of service representing the citizens of Victoria, including:

  • six terms on Council
  • Represented Victoria on the Capital Regional District Board, the Regional Water Commission & acted as chair of the Waste Diversion Council
  • 9 years as Co-Chair, Victoria chapter of the National Homelessness Initiative (SCPI)
  • 8 years with Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) National Board. I was chair of the BC Caucus, on the national Executive & represented FCM in Ukraine in 2016
  • International Electoral Observer for the Mexican State election in Nayarit

I understand the critical role Good Governance plays as our communities evolve & grow. I'd like to help Victoria regain that perspective.
