The Alberta New Democrats and FRIENDS invite you to join with us in showing our appreciation to Neil & Merry Reimer and Ivor & Aileen Dent. We are proud to honour these very special people for their role in the founding of the Alberta New Democrats in the 1960’s.

These two men, Neil as Leader and Ivor as President with the support of many other Albertans, brought the provincial NDP into being. Ivor and Aileen were teachers and Ivor went on to play a major role in Edmonton civic politics. He was Mayor from 1968 – 1974 while Neil went on to have a major role in the transition of the unions that were forerunners to the Communications, Energy & Paper Workers Union. Merry, Aileen, Ivor and Neil have all maintained their involvement in the New Democratic Party and their active engagement in charitable organizations is legion, as you would expect from community leaders who set out to build a better world.

Neil is an Officer of the Order of Canada, Ivor a member of the Order of Canada. Come and join us as we honour four outstanding citizens – Albertans who laid the foundation on which many of us strive to build.
