Edmonton Officially Renames City Hall the "Nathan Fillion Civilian Pavilion"
After a 2019 petition launched by Lauren Hunter and SONiC 102.9 FM garnered renewed attention this week ahead of the James Gunn-directed film's premiere today, the municipal government building will — at least temporarily — adopt the new name.
As of press time, the original petition has reached over 26,000 signatures of its 35,000-signature goal after receiving a boost from Margot Robbie, John Cena, Idris Elba and more in a promotional video.
"I 100 percent support this completely, and I really, really hope you succeed in this mission, Edmonton. I believe in it," Robbie said in the video released earlier this week.

What's a more 'Civilian Pavilion' than Edmonton's own City Hall?
