Resident Bob Stewart honoured with BC Community Achievement Award
Burnaby’s Robert (Bob) Stewart is among 36 British Columbians named as recipients of the eighth annual BC Community Achievement Awards.
Following a distinguished career in policing, in which Stewart retired as chief of the Vancouver Police Department, he has dedicated his life to volunteer work.
Along with Variety - The Children’s Charity, he has contributed to the Mt. St. Joseph Hospital Foundation, Special Olympics BC, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver and the Motor Dealer Council of BC.
