I'm completely saddened by this news. I joined Beedie not too long after Ali began his position as our Dean, so he is the only Dean I have worked for at Beedie. I always found him to be extremely kind, supportive, and humble. He was always smiling and had a great sense of humour (I will especially miss Ali's video updates!). He also had a great vision for the future of the school; one that would focus on innovation, inclusiveness, and excellence so we could develop future business leaders who would make meaningful contributions to our society. It is hard for me to imagine that he will not be at Beedie when we return to campus in the future. I will miss his presence greatly and offer my deepest condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.
