As mayor, Philippe Roy defends the interests of Mount Royal citizens on the Montreal Agglomeration Council, where he represents the views of one of the 15 reconstituted municipalities.
Mr. Roy is a lawyer and works in public affairs.
He ran as part of Vera Danyluk’s team in the 2005 municipal elections. He was elected councillor and took charge of all matters relating to the environment and became the spokesman for young Mount Royal families. He was appointed chair of the Council Commission on the Environment, which piloted the creation of the Town’s first sustainable development plan. He also oversaw development of the Town’s first tree policy.
Re-elected to a second term in the 2009 municipal elections, Philippe Roy became the Town’s representative on the CLD Les Trois Monts. In the spring of 2010, he took on the duties of the Town’s deputy mayor when Mayor Danyluk left her post for health reasons. He was then elected by acclamation as the 14th mayor of the Town of Mount Royal in the by-election held in the fall of 2010 and re-elected in the 2013 and 2017 general elections, again by acclamation.
Several times a year, Philippe Roy shares his thoughts on various topics of his choosing in the local weeklies. Keep an eye on his columns.
