Tim: Communicator

Making a Difference

Connecting the Community through Communications

Re-elect sign with PhotoTim Morrison’s extensive background in professional communications has played a major role in his community service. In 2009, Tim became Esquimalt’s first and only blogger that blogged exclusively about Esquimalt. After the Esquimalt News ceased publication, Tim stepped in to create EsquimaltReview.com to help keep the community connected and informed.

Over the next two years, the volunteer-driven EsquimaltReview.com had been read by hundreds of local residents, resulting in Tim’s poll-topping victory as a first-time candidate for Esquimalt Council in the 2011 Municipal Election.

Since becoming a Councillor, Tim has stayed connected with the community through social media as well as frequent media interviews with CFAX 1070, CBC Radio, Victoria Times Colonist, Victoria News, CTV News, CHEK TV and even appeared in a satirical news sketch for Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. Tim has been a vocal advocate on issues including open government, community planning, economic revitalization, lower property taxes, policing & public safety, and against the CRD’s plan to locate its centralized sewage treatment plants in Esquimalt.

Tim’s media experience also ranges beyond Esquimalt. He has been featured on Global TV’s News Hour regarding his extensive travel writing for CanWest News Services. His journalism in raising awareness of the many abandoned, disabled Samburu children in the Rift Valley of northwest Kenya led to an internationally-acclaimed documentary film, Moja Moja.

Tim Morrison’s commitment to others ranges across the globe. His journalism on the plight of Kenya’s abandoned disabled children helped to raise thousands of dollars and led to an internationally-acclaimed documentary that greatly made a difference in providing a positive future for the children.

Tim’s vast communications and media skills have been an asset to Esquimalt’s Council. He has provided leadership to the municipality in keeping our residents better connected, informed, and involved in the decision-making process. Currently, Tim is leading an initiative to web-cast all Council meetings, so that all Esquimalt residents can directly view Council from the comfort of their homes at any time.

Tim Morrison listens.

Tim Morrison leads.
