The Corporal James Wilbert Gregson Galloway Memorial
University of Saskatchewan
Corporal 'Jim' Galloway is Number 203 on the RCMP's Honor Roll. R.I.P.
A partial quote from the correspondence that accompanied the photo of Corporal Galloway states: 'A dedication service honouring the memory of Corporal James Galloway was held at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on July 19, 2008. (University of Saskatchewan).
Corporal James Galloway was killed by gunfire on February 28, 2004 at Spruce Grove, Alberta. He was accompanied by his dog 'Cito'.
The WCVM Veterinary Teaching Hospital was one of two initiatives to which Corporal Galloway's family and friends contributed in his memory, and, as a result of the many generous contributions, a clinical examination room in the new Veterinary Teaching Hospital expansion has been dedicated in his name.
Construction has been completed on a two story addition to the Teaching Hospital, as well as extensive renovations to its small surgery suites, anesthesia, intensive care and treatment areas.
The shiny new clinical examination room named for Corporal Galloway will serve to support the health care of companion animals and service animals alike, while expanding the space to foster the education and mentorship of the veterinarians of tomorrow. As such, the Galloway Patient Examination Room is a fitting reflection of Jim's passion for his work, his dogs, and for education.
The enclosed card/photo (below) is a copy of the beautiful plaque mounted in the Galloway Examination Room for all to see. The WCVM at the U of S is continuing to take donations on behalf of Cpl. Galloway.

R.C.M. Police Dog handlers have always had a very special place in my heart beginning with 'E' Div. Reg. #20836, Constable Laurie L. Marshall in the mid 1960's.
In my view, they are remarkable people who perform remarkable tasks working mostly alone with their partners in dark, remote, dangerous places and often running long hours without food, rest and in some cases without proper clothing, protection or back up.
The RCMP was most fortunate to have Corporal James Galloway on their team. He has left a legacy in Canadian Police circles which will not easily be matched.
