Hi! It’s Carly and Jay from Jack 96.9, your afternoon show on Jack from 4-8pm. We are new to this beautiful city and we are having a blast exploring its culture and history. We are still learning but do know one thing for sure: Vancouver loves Ryan Reynolds, and Ryan Reynolds loves Deadpool.

Here’s our plan…

We are launching this petition to honour our local hero and his iconic character by renaming the Port Coquitlam Community Centre Wading Pool on Wilson Ave to The Wade Wilson Wilson Wade Pool.

Wade Wilson is Deadpool’s real name and Deadpool is one of Ryan’s most popular and beloved roles, and also one of the most successful superhero movies of all time.

Ryan Reynolds is not only a talented actor and a hilarious comedian, but also a generous philanthropist and a proud Canadian. He has donated millions of dollars to various causes, including health care, education, and social justice. He has also supported local businesses and artists, and promoted Vancouver as a film destination.

So, what do you say? Are you ready to join us in this fun and creative campaign to celebrate Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool? Please sign and share this petition to show your support and demand that mayor Brad West make this name change official. Together, we can make history and have a good laugh.
