Retired hockey player, Georges Laraque has been named the new deputy leader of Canada’s Green Party. Known for his gentlemanly approach to fighting, Laraque is a soft-spoken vegan and animal rights activist who caught the eye of the Green Party after his numerous interviews about veganism’s positive impact on the environment.

As Deputy Leader of the Greens, Laraque will work to promote the connection between a healthy society and a sustainable one.

“After working for many years on key issues like animal welfare and improving lives in Haiti, I am so pleased to have joined a political party that truly cares about building a healthy and just society,” said Laraque. “I believe that the world becomes a better place one person at a time and that every single individual should do their part to make a difference. Canada has a serious problem with inactivity and obesity that deserves attention. I look forward to working with the Green Party on making Canada the world’s healthiest and most sustainable country.”

In addition to his work with the Green Party, the ex-hockey will continue to raise funds for Grace Children’s Hospital located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti—an area that was devastated by an earthquake that took the lives of over 200,000 people—and work as a spokesperson for Terrasphere, a vertical farming company.
