Outgoing Surrey RCMP OIC Bill Fordy and incoming RCMP OIC C/Supt. Dwayne McDonald recognized the Surrey Board of Trade for its many years

of work towards public safety for businesses and the 20 years of organizing the annual Police Officer of the Year Awards dinner. Accepting on behalf

of SBOT is CEO Anita Huberman. “This is a great surprise and an honour to receive the RCMP’s recognition. As C/Supt. Fordy said, it takes all of us

working together to keep our city safe. At the Surrey Board of Trade, we take that responsibility very seriously,” said Huberman.
