On January 7, 2013, one hundred and fifty retired RCMP members attended a tour of the new “E” Division Headquarters at the invitation of RCMP Superintendent Wayne Sutherland (OIC “E” Division HQ Relocation Project).

 

 

In his opening comments to the group, Superintendent outline that “the long awaited new “E” Division Headquarters building has been completed under budget and on time.”  He went on to say “the Force took possession of this new headquarters building on December 23, 2012 and transition from the old Vancouver Headquarters to the new complex will be completed on April 14, 2013.”

Since the outset of the “E” Division Relocation Project, two RCMP Veterans were significant contributors to the design and coordination of this completed complex.  These two Veterans are: Greg Dowbrowloski and Jan Savalor.
