Veggie Athlete Georges Laraque Speaks Out Against Animal Products
NHL star Georges Laraque of the Montreal Canadiens is proving once again that green protein is all you need.
Standing six-foot three and weighing 260 lbs, Laraque is one of Canada’s most famous hockey players. Oh yeah…and he’s also a HUGE animal lover and proud vegetarian!!
Georges recently took to his official site to discuss his first fur protest: Laraque writes:
“On May 3, 2009, I was present at an anti-fur conference protest in downtown Montreal. 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.”
What made Georges give up the cruel stuff? One word: Earthings.
Yes, sir! One of Ecorazzi’s favorite documentaries convinced the big guy to put down the meat. To learn more about this great film, check our exclusive interview with Earthlings creator Shaun Monson.
Welcome to the club, Georges!
