Endorsements

"I met Kyla in 2021 while working together on a Community Covid Relief project.  I have since come to know her while working on other community events and discussing the future of Port Moody.  I am confident that as a Port Moody Councillor, Kyla will bring an open mind, consensus building skills and a good work ethic.
Kyla Knowles represents a positive future for the community and a new perspective on the wide range of challenges facing Port Moody in the next 4 years."

Alistair Henry
Ribfest Volunteer Coordinator
Rotary Club of Port Moody

"Kyla has given her time on multiple occasions to assist the Rotary Club of Port Moody in our community fundraising efforts, including on fairly short notice. She joined us this summer to volunteer at A Night From Nashville which raised money for the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation. She also graciously gave up a weekend to help serve in the VIP Zone at Ribfest and she went to the trouble to get her serving it right certificate just for us! At both events Kyla showed up with a smile on her face, ready to work. She’s got a great attitude and exudes community spirit which is what you want from someone on city council. "
