“I’ve dedicated my life to making Vancouver a better place – I want my daughters to see a future for themselves here. To do that, we need to revitalize neighbourhoods, build liveable communities and ensure our city is a clean, safe, and welcoming place for all who call it home.”
As a former member of the VPD, Brian focuses on rising crime rates and dealing with them as he has been during his 28 years in the police force.
Brian Montague is the newest addition to city hall’s council slate, representing ABC Vancouver.
Montague served the Vancouver Police Department for over 28 years until his retirement in 2022. During his distinguished career with the VPD, Montague held a wide variety of roles in both front-line and investigative positions. His tenure included working on the Downtown Eastside, investigating the Stanley Cup riots, and serving as the VPD’s spokesperson between 2012 and 2017.
Brian was born and raised in Vancouver. While growing up, he attended Jamieson Elementary, Churchill Secondary, and Langara College.
Before his policing career, Brian worked in Vancouver’s restaurant, hotel, and hospitality sectors.
On Council, Brian plans to address the major challenges facing Vancouver residents, including the increases in crime, and Vancouver’s out-of-control cost of living.
Brian believes it is important for everyone to take pride in the places they live and work. He wants to see city hall revitalize neighbourhoods, build livable communities, and ensure Vancouver is a clean, safe, and welcoming place for all those who call our city home.
Brian is married to his wife of 21 years and has two teenage daughters.
