Ryan Reynolds or Sir Paul McCartney could become the next leader of the First State in Canada … the indigenous community has spoken, and celebrities who are not indigenous will participate in the election.
Ryan and Paul have been nominated as Premier for Walpole Island First Nation, a sanctuary located on an island bordering Michigan and Canada … according to the indigenous community operations director, James Jenkins.
He told TMZ … the rock actor and icon had been nominated by 2 qualified electors this weekend, which immediately qualified the celebrities as candidates. Officially for the role of Head.
That’s pretty interesting … we told Ryan and Paul technically don’t need to be part of the indigenous community to get nominated or even rise to the top as Team Leader. There is a loophole from 1868, when Walpole Island First Nation elected a non-member leader, setting a precedent allowing non-members to run for Leader.
Now, Ryan and Sir Paul just show the ballot. Actually, they did, but we said they had to contact the Walpole Island member office until Thursday to remove their names. If the deadline passes without either of you looking at it, we say both will remain legitimate candidates for the position of General Manager when the election is held on September 19.
If one of them wins, First Nation will contact them, and Sheriff Ryan or Sheriff Paul will have to take office or resign.
The intentions behind the nominations are still unclear, and we say there are mixed feelings about it. Some of the members believe that they qualify to be an effective leader because of their hugely successful entertainment career.
What would you think differently after seeing ‘Van Wilder’ … right? And, that’s why others deemed their nomination an inappropriate joke.
The head, we say, is similar to being mayor … they are the head of the council and the voice of the community, which oversees the programs and services that are administered by the administrators. onions. Naturally, we say Chief is the most respected position in Walpole Island First Nation, a country with around 5,000 members.
Walpole Island is no stranger to celebrities … we said Cher and Kid Rock Spent a lot of time in the area, going fishing and duck hunting.
One final announcement … we told Ryan or Paul they might have to move closer to the sanctuary if elected as Head. Unfortunately, you cannot attend tribal meetings on Zoom.
Ryan is at least Canadian, so that gives him a chance, but … Paul is Beatle.
Good luck to the candidates!
