"Lowell Green's passion is what makes him so good at what he does. When he takes on a cause, he is passionate about it." -- -- Steve Madely, radio host and commentator
About the Author
This man is a "giant of talk radio," Prime Minister Stephen Harper told some 850 people gathered at Ottawa's Civic Centre in April 2006 for a "roast" marking Lowell Green's 50th year in broadcasting. "I am sure I speak for all your listeners in thanking you for your huge contributions to democratic debate in this great country," said the Prime Minister. Few would disagree.
For the past 50 years, no Canadian has followed as closely or debated as vigorously the issues that define our country and the world. Lowell is the recipient of both the Radio and Television News Directors Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Broadcast Journalism, and the Canadian Association of Broadcasters' coveted Gold Ribbon Award for Outstanding Community Service by an individual broadcaster. The recipient of countless other awards and honours, including the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal for his work on behalf of veterans, Lowell Green's broadcast views have delighted and infuriated but, most of all, enlightened generations of Canadians. So will this book!
"Lowell Green is a good soldier, fighting the good fight," said General Rick Hillier, Chief of the Defense Staff during a surprise "on air" special presentation in April 2006, during which the veteran broadcaster was thanked by General Hillier for his indefatigable support of Canada's troops, especially our men and women fighting abroad. Over the years, Lowell has fought countless battles for "the little guy" and against what he sees as the country's gradual slide into socialism and the abandonment of personal responsibility.
