MICHEL TROTTIER

If you are reading this, it is proof of your will – your will to project us into the future together by taking action in the present. I firmly believe that a city is the best place from which to create the type of social change that betters quality of life locally, but also strengthens the region as a whole. In 2013, I realized that creativity, innovation and pride would not be instated with the reelection of former politicians, but with a collective appropriation of the values named here. This is why I am running for Mayor of Laval – it is not a plan B, but the natural progression of my life as an involved citizen, and my goal of sharing a positive, creative and productive vision for the City of Laval.

If you too believe that boldness has its place in politics; that Laval needs to rewrite its name on the leadership board of great Quebec cities; and that a new, creative and sustainable future must be forged, then I encourage you to support and share your belief in quality municipal policies that represent the importance of being present – for each other, and for the future.

As Mayor, this is what I am committed to offering you, and what the 21 candidates in our party are committed to delivering every day. We will do this to the best of our ability and with all of our hearts.

Sincerely,  

MICHEL TROTTIER signaturemichel 300x33

MICHEL TROTTIER maire visionnaire 2

A visionary

Michel Trottier is the opposition leader within city council. Fabreville municipal councillor since 2013, his dream is of a people-first, ambitious city. He created Parti Laval due to a rejection of the status quo and the past. Parti Laval aims to decentralize investments within Laval, taking them away from the center and bringing them closer to its citizens – and that means, within each neighbourhood. Laval is the third city in Quebec to rebuild its leadership through creative and innovative local projects. Michel Trottier’s vision has allowed him to bring together 21 active citizens who also hope to reinstate the city as one of the greatest in the province. On November 5th, the people of Laval will have the opportunity to choose a vibrant Mayor and thriving neighbourhoods based on services that take into consideration presence and proximity.

Citizen first

Michel Trottier has lived in Laval for more than 30 years. As a deeply involved member of the community, he presided over the association of residents of Champfleury and allowed for the development of many local initiatives, making the neighbourhood an example for quality of life. The desire to improve the daily lives of citizens and its future generations propelled him into municipal politics in 2013, when he ran as an independent. Creative and ambitious, Michel Trottier became known through his initiative with used suitcases, in which he placed his signs, and which citizens throughout his sector displaced of their own volition. For Michel Trottier, politics is a participatory act.

Active man

Health is at the heart of any public issue. Former leader of Quebec en Forme, an organization devoted to promoting health in Quebec’s youth, he presided over the regions of Laval, Lanaudière, the Laurentians and Montreal, promoting physical activity and healthy eating and lifestyle choices. As a municipal councillor, Michel Trottier ensured that Laval be recognized as a “Vélosympathique” city, a city where cycling is encouraged and developed both through infrastructure and support. He also supported the importance of removing junk food from schools in Laval and participates in the annual Champfleury race every year. Furthermore, he was opposed to the rule prohibiting children from playing outside, and moved to allow free play in the streets of Laval so that children could benefit wholly from their immediate surroundings. As a cyclist and runner, he hopes to offer citizens the opportunity to benefit physically from their city.
