Well, well, well, if it isn’t one of Canada’s favourite celebrities making headlines once again. Folks in Ottawa will soon be able to venture along Ryan Reynolds Way, as the superstar is getting a street named after him in the nation’s capital.
The honour may come as a surprise simply because of its location, given that Ryan Reynolds is a proud born and raised Vancouverite. What is less of a surprise, however, is that the recent Governor General’s award winner has earned this honour through the generosity and support he’s become so well known for.
There’s been a lot said lately about our dear social media intern, Bruce. And now, Bruce would like to say a few words…#SteadyAsSheGoes #BruceReynolds pic.twitter.com/VCObMQWNq2

Reynolds actually spent part of his childhood living in Vanier, and he and his wife Blake Lively contributed $50,000 to the Ottawa Food Bank during the pandemic. He also had some fun playing along with Ottawa Public Health, pretending to be a less-than-equipped intern named ‘Bruce’.
Now, Ottawa has paid back these good deeds with the unveiling of Ryan Reynolds Way. The street will be part of a new Ottawa subdivision, located near the corner of Mer Bleue and Brian Coburn.
It’s clear that Ottawa has a special place in Ryan’s heart – and in his honour, I’ll be bringing forward a motion later today to have a street named after him.

This tips off a wonderful start to 2022 for Reynolds, whose other recent ventures include Aviation Gin, his own pro soccer team, and possibly bringing his low-cost mobile phone company to Canada.
The devil works hard, but Ryan Reynolds definitely works harder.
