A Port Alberni resident has requested city council rename a street, structure or park after his father, Dr. George Garnet “Red” Reynolds.

Reynolds was a chiropractor who spent 50 years serving the Alberni Valley, 12 of those as city alderman (now called councillors).

According to a letter submitted to council by Terry Reynolds on April 10, Dr. Reynolds fought in the Second World War as a member of the King’s Own Calgary Tank Regiment.

After graduating from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1950, Reynolds settled in Port Alberni and was already named Young Citizen of the Year by 1954.

Last fall, Reynolds was honoured with a Grant of Arms for his service—the first time a Canadian chiropractor has been presented with the award.

The request has been forwarded to city planner Scott Smith to be added to the approved street list.
