Georges Laraque Skating Towards Veganism

Written by Vegetarian Star on May 14th, 2009 in Animal Issues, Athletes-Games-Sports.

Boston Bruins v Montreal CanadiensThe ice he plays on may be cold, but NHL player Georges Laraque, who’s the enforcer for the Montreal Canadiens, sure has a warm heart for animals.

Laraque recently blogged about his participation in an anti-fur protest in Montreal. He’s also vegetarian and is working on becoming vegan.

“On May 3, 2009, I was present at an anti-fur conference protest in downtown Montreal. It was taking place right next to the Place Bonaventure, the site of a North American Fur and Fashion Exposition. About 50 protesters and I stood proud and firm in the defense of animals. I want to personally thank everyone who gave me the chance to be part of this event and I will make it my mission for the rest of my life to do everything I can to protect animals. I’m also proud to announce that I have officially become a vegetarian and will slowly work towards becoming totally vegan.”

You can view pics of Georges at the protest.

At six feet, three inches, 260 pounds, this athlete is surely a poster boy for potential Skinny Bastards who might be afraid to scarf down some seitan in fear of being wimpy. 

Wishing Georges best of luck with his vegan goals!
