#SaveTheChateauLaurier-Comedian Tom Green

Ottawa comedian Tom Green is hosting a picnic Saturday evening in Major’s Hill Park to bring attention to the controversial proposed addition to the Château Laurier.

He is also asking people to post pictures of the downtown hotel on social media to show officials the addition is “a bad idea” for a capital city.

Growing up in Ottawa, Green said he used to skateboard around Major’s Hill Park and wants to see the same view as he grows older, which is why he’s speaking up against the addition now.

Green wants people to express their concerns to their local MPs, the National Capital Commission and city councillors.

Green said he would like Mayor Jim Watson to attend the picnic to discuss the design.

Green said the picnic begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in Major’s Hill Park.
