Published Jul 20, 2020Last week, SNFU frontman Chi Pig tragically passed away at 57, and the massive outpouring of tributes shows just how treasured he was as a Canadian punk icon. Now, there's a petition to get his name added to Canada's Walk of Fame, and it's picking up some steam.
The Change.org petition was launched over the weekend and has already accrued almost 7,300 signatures, as of press time. The write-up from petition starter Patrick Long reads, "Let's get our Piggy a maple flavoured star. Be kind to one another. Hog on!"
Check out the petition here.
Additionally, Chi Pig is being celebrated with some graffiti tributes at Vancouver's Pub 340, where he was a regular patron. The bar is currently boarded up, and it's been become a shrine of sorts to the SNFU leader. See some images of Pub 340's current look below.
