Cornwall Ontario – Popular Ottawa radio personality Lowell Green has said he’s devastated to discover that his new book that celebrates Canada’s 150th Birthday has been pulled from Chapters bookstores after an alleged complaint.
He posted to his social media page Friday afternoon.
Mr. Green, a relative newcomer to social media has been building up a large fan base. Within an hour over 100 comments, almost all supportive were left by his fans.

The former CFRA radio host has been suffering from some medical issues that is keeping him from attending signing sessions for the book, but has been signing and shipping the book through his website.
Chapters did not respond to our inquiry before press time.
UPDATE 5:07 PM
Thank you for the opportunity to respond. Mr. Green’s book remains available as are his other titles we carry. It appears the concern is around placement within the store.
The book was not slated to be positioned on the Canada 150 table as our procurement team reserves the right to curate our table selections according to our themes, and instead have chosen to highlight a range of books that celebrate the diverse history of Canada . Unfortunately, not every book published is selected for table placement. Lowell Green fans can certainly find his book in select stores and on kiosk in store, as well as at indigo.ca.
