Reasons To Love Vancouver #6: Ryan Reynolds

@VancityReynolds has always beat a loud drum for his hometown, but he stepped it up in the face of some serious alone time. First up, he hopped on a reminiscing Zoom call with the CBC’s Amy O’Brian, a VanMag alum and an old pal of Reynolds from their Prince of Wales Trek days. And then, so his other alma mater wouldn’t feel left out, he gave the grade 12 class from Kits Secondary a de facto commencement speech and topped it off by sending every one of them a pizza from the Broadway institution that is Nat’s. And yesterday, he and Blake Lively donated $200,000 to the Coady International Institute’s Circle of Abundance, which promotes and supports Indigenous women’s leadership.
