I consider myself honoured to have worked with Ali during our time at SFU. He embodied someone who truly cared about what he was doing. I’ve always admired him for his transparent and inclusive leadership, values-based decision-making, and truly calm and compassionate demeanour. He had vision, involved others, and truly made an impact. I know that he worked hard to “Build a Better Beedie” and that he did (and more) - he most certainly was an expert at building authentic relationships. He was always willing to go the extra mile and did so with that wonderful smile of his. Sending my more heartfelt condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues across the world.
