Happy Vegan Day Georges Laraque!

Today is the day NHL player Georges Laraque turns vegan.

The Montreal Canadienes enforcer had been vegetarian for some time and recently told the Montreal Gazette he planned to go vegan on June 1st.

Georges has already blogged about his activism, participating in an anti-fur protest in Canada.

Making the plunge which involves eschewing dairy, eggs, and even certain types of clothing can be a challenge. Some may find themselves “going vegan” several times before they get it right.

Think Georges can pull it off? Give us your thoughts!

Wishing you a wonderful, animal-free life, Georges!

    It’s great to have anyone go vegan but especially noteworthy when an athlete does so with all of those protein myths still hanging around. Great job, Georges! Your activism is inspiring. We miss you in Pittsburgh.

    I wish Georges all the best. I’ve always been a fan of his hockey style – tough physical play but with skill as well. Now he’s coming through to smash the stereotypical, mythical image of a vegan being undernourished, weak and generally unhealthy.

    Living in Canada and being surrounded by savage meat eaters that happen to all love hockey, it will be nice this coming winter to point out that the 255 lb. man in the Canadiens jersey knocking the crap out of the inferior goon in the Leafs jersey is a ‘vegan freak’ like me!

    The compassionate vegetarian Georges Laraque is the best fighter in the NHL in addition to being the most humane player in the NHL. He also has good hockey skills.

    He’d better start eating some serious soy and bean-based food cos he will need it. Ain’t no protein in a salad.
