Ryan Reynolds or Mister Paul McCartney could become the next head of a First Nation in Canada … the local community has spoken, and celebrity non-natives are ready for the election.
Ryan and Paul have been named Head of Walpole Island Nation First, a reservation located on an island bordering Michigan and Canada … according to the Indigenous Community’s director of operations. James Jenkins.
He tells TMZ … the actor and rock icon were nominated by 2 qualified voters this weekend, who instantly lists the celebs as official candidates for Chief.
It’s pretty interesting … we have been told Ryan and Paul do not have to be technically part of the local community to be appointed or even promoted as Boss. There is a gap from the road back to 1868, when the Walpole Island Nation First National elected a non-member as chief, setting a precedent by allowing non-members to run for Chief.
Now, Ryan and Sir Paul just have to go to the polls. Indeed, they are already, but we have been told they should contact the membership office on Walpole Island to remove their names. If the deadline passes without one of them, we are told that they will both remain legitimate candidates for Chief when the election will be held on 19 September.
If one of them wins, the First Nation will contact them, and Chief Ryan or Chief Paul will have to take office or resign.
The intentions behind the nominations remain unclear, and we have been told there are mixed emotions about it. Some members believe or have things to be an effective leader because of their successful entertainment career.
What else would you think after seeing ‘Van Wilder’ … right? And, this is why others think their nominations are an inappropriate joke.
The mayor, for us, it is said, is similar to being mayor … they are the head of the council and the voice of the community, in charge of overseeing programs and services run by administrators. Of course, we were told the boss is the most respected position on Walpole Island First Nation, which has about 5,000 members.
Walpole Island is no stranger to celebs … we have been told Cher and Rock foot have spent a great deal of time in the area, going fishing and duck hunting.
One final warning … we have said Ryan or Paul will likely move near the booking if elected Chief. Sorry, you can not attend tribal meetings in Zoom.
At least Ryan is Canadian, so he gives her a leg up, but … Paul is a Beatle.
