One of Ottawa's most internationally recognizable comedians is back in the city to voice his displeasure with a proposed design for an addition to the Château Laurier.

In a video posted to Twitter on Thursday, Tom Green said he spent much of his youth in downtown Ottawa, especially skateboarding at Major's Hill Park. 

He wrote on Twitter, Thursday, "It is time for our elected officials to stand with the people and reject this architectural abomination and demand that it be redesigned to add harmony to our beautiful city."

Green was planning on being at Ottawa City Hall for a special meeting regarding the Château Laurier project at 2 p.m., Thursday.
