Why this petition matters

*UPDATE: Saturday Dec 5th

What a wild week this has been. Thank you to everyone who has continued to sign and share this idea to honour Ryan Reynolds. 

After some reflection, we understand his decision and appreciate his consideration.

I guess we'll just give the street to Hugh Jackman instead ;) 

*UPDATE: Saturday Nov 28th

Deep breath here...Ryan just responded in the most Ryan Reynolds way

So...should we keep it going, even if it's just for the hilarious puns and the reasons he listed?

(PS: A HUGE thank you to everyone who signed and shared this - especially to our Kevin and Sonia Show listeners who started this all!)

====ORIGINAL =====

We at The Kevin and Sonia Show with Tara Jean on 104.9 KiSS RADiO feel Vancouver's favourite son, Ryan Reynolds, deserves to have a street named after him (or at least a lane). It's time.

Not only has he captured our hearts on the big screen, his humanitarian efforts have made him a beloved local treasure who encapsulates the best of Vancouverites, and fully deserving of this recognition in his hometown.

In 2020 alone, Ryan:

-Along with his wife, Blake Lively, donated $500K to Covenant House to help homeless and at-risk youth and $200K to an Indigenous Women's Leadership Fund
-Helped a woman find her treasured stolen teddy bear that contained the voice of her late mother
-Helped 300 kids get new winter coats in Nunavut, and bought 400 pizzas for local grads who were going to miss their ceremony due to COVID-19
-Used his own salary to hire BIPOC staff for a new film
-Has made countless efforts to help cheer up local kids who are going through tough situations with personalized videos and heartfelt messages.

Ryan Reynolds has proudly helped elevate the positive profile of his hometown to a worldwide audience (I mean, his online handle is @VancityReynolds!) and we feel for all he's done for the community, he's entirely deserving of a street named after him.

Help us make this a reality, as we thank Ryan for his contributions to the community and around the world.

PS: We recognize the City of Vancouver *generally* only names streets after people who have passed, but there have been exceptions PLUS technically Ryan Reynolds is Dead(pool). We think we have a solid case here.
