Green Party looks to the NHL

Elizabeth May taps Georges Laraque to drum up support in Quebec

Former Montreal Canadiens enforcer Georges Laraque was named one of two Green Party deputy leaders this weekend (the other is Adriane Carr). After being let go from the team earlier this year, the 33-year-old has focused on drumming up aid for his homeland of Haiti and environmental causes—he’s a dedicated vegan and animal rights activist. But his work with the Green Party will only go so far, as Laraque says he has no plans to run for federal office at the moment.
