Morrison, who serves as Co-Chair of the Esquimalt Resident Association, said he plans to run a grassroots campaign through social media channels.

“My blog and facebook account have long been about issues and life in Esquimalt and, today, I launched a twitter account (@TimForEsquimalt) as yet another channel to get people in Esquimalt better connected and informed,” says Morrison.

In addition to serving as Esquimalt Residents Association Co-Chair for the past two years, Morrison is also a member of the Esquimalt Parks & Recreation Advisory Committee, Esquimalt Chamber of Commerce, and a Block Captain for Esquimalt Block Watch.
