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.

Stewart was also the founding chair of the Justice Institute and a founding member of Crime Stoppers Vancouver.

“Each of these people has a remarkable record of enhancing the quality of life of residents throughout the province,” said Premier Christy Clark of the recipients. “And each truly deserves to be singled out and recognized by all British Columbians for their contributions.”
