Prentice performance panned

We're not sure if you saw the whole debate... Did you take a snack break some time?

In what one guest half-jokingly called “the first social event of the new order,” former NDP leader and current Edmonton Public School Board trustee Ray Martin, 73, was married to local artist Evelyn David last Saturday in a secular ceremony at Edmonton’s Riverdale Hall. The hall is a stone’s throw from the Sundance Housing Cooperative, something of a Dipper spawning ground, having been home to a number of Alberta NDP worthies including the first MP, Ross Harvey, and another former provincial leader, the late Pam Barrett. MLA and former leader Brian Mason, 61, (Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood) officiated at the wedding—widower Martin’s third—before about 100 guests, including…
