The Grandview Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee held a Physician Appreciation Luncheon on Thursday, July 24, 2014, at the Grandview Kinsmen Community Centre for Dr. Elliott, Dr. Kanwal and Dr. Singh. All three of the physicians were in attendance as well as their families along with office staff from the Grandview Medical Clinic and various members from Town and R.M. Councils.
“The reason why we are gathered here today is to say a big thank-you to our three exceptional doctors,” stated Blaire Cairns. “We just wanted to show our appreciation in some small way for your devotion to our community, your dedication to keeping our ER open, and the extra mile you often go to make things happen. We appreciate the stresses that may be involved in keeping our facilities successful 24/7 and thank you for your commitment.”
“This is very nice, very kind and you have been very generous,” noted Dr. Elliott. “It’s an easy place to work because it is so much fun. It works both ways; its only easy to be a good doctor and enjoy the community and public when they have been so good to us. People have been very understanding when we change appointments and are always grateful and thankful to see us. The doctors are really good, we have a good group going now and we are all getting along really well.” Dr. Kanwal agreed with Dr. Elliott’s statement and jokingly said, “Repeat that”.
“I have to say the same thing,” noted Dr. Singh. “Everybody here has been very nice, it’s a very good atmosphere, and as physicians, we are helping each other all the time. I enjoy working here, so thank you, everybody.”

Man facing charges of impersonating RCMP officer
By Jennifer Carniel
A 39-year-old Calder man faces charges after posing as an RCMP officer and pulling a car over near the Manitoba border a couple of weeks ago.
On Saturday, July 19, 2014, RCMP received a call about a man pulling a car over in Wroxton, Sask., about an hour east of Yorkton. The driver claims the 39-year-old was using unorthodox tactics to get his attention.
On July 19, 2014 the man was arrested by the Langenburg RCMP with the help from the Yorkton Rural Detachment. The man’s identity will not be released until his court date on August 12, 2014; however he has been released from police custody. He is facing charges of one count of impersonating a police officer.
Police received a number of tips from the public, which had helped assist with the arrest.
RCMP assure the public that all unmarked police cars have red and blue lights that flash and that people can ask to see an RMCP officers identification and badge.
