The Aga Khan was in Edmonton on Tuesday to celebrate the opening of a $25-million garden he gifted to the University of Alberta. Named the Aga Khan Garden, it sprawls more than 4.8 hectares — about the size of 31 NHL rinks.

“We drew on his proximity to Calgary and we’re lucky that he was able to be here,” Cannon said. “We’re just delighted that everything lined up beautifully.”
