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.

Message to Ottawa City Council As Harry Truman said, “Men (people) make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.”— Tom Green (@tomgreenlive) July 11, 2019
Green was planning on being at Ottawa City Hall for a special meeting regarding the Château Laurier project at 2 p.m., Thursday.
