PK and Laraque To Haiti

Link : http://www.rds.ca/hockey/chroniques/322219.html


Quote:
MONTRÉAL - Le défenseur du Canadien de Montréal, P.K. Subban, et l'ex-joueur du Tricolore, Georges Laraque, quitteront Montréal lundi matin pour Port-au-Prince, en Haïti.

Ils participeront à une mission humanitaire organisée par Vision Mondiale Québec.

Dans la capitale haitienne, les deux athlètes visiteront un hôpital pour enfants endommagé par le séisme de l'an dernier, et dont la reconstruction est financée en partie par `Hockey pour Haïti'.

L'initiative a été orchestrée par Georges Laraque, l'Association des joueurs de la Ligue nationale de hockey et Vision Mondiale. Jusqu'à ce jour, Hockey pour Haïti a amassé 1,3 million $ pour cet hôpital

I thought Subban was signed

On a serious note, I don't like Laraque being around P.K

I'll wait until I hear the return before I judge this move.
Oh, and nice work by them.

Yeah, the organization shouldn't allow Subban anywhere near the failure that Laraque was.

If PK turns vegetarian then he becomes my favorite player on the habs. Plus, that way, he won't be ****ing scared of anything.

After hearing Dave Naylor's story about the Huddle in Haiti.... it would make me think twice about being such a humanitarian.

Security is a serious issue. Most of the humanitarian aid is done under the supervision of armed guards. Lots of anger towards other countries not helping enough, and they take it out on the people going there to help.

Friends of ours tried to adopt a homeless/parentless child from Haiti. They were told they had to live there for at least 3 months, in order to qualify for a child.

Yeah, they adopted from China instead.

Live there for 3 months... ?

I can only guess, to ease the transition. But serioulsy.... that country is so messed up that they do not even know what help is, or how to help themselves....

I seriously feel sorry for the Haitians who live there.

Once I heard an interview where a Hatian said his country was the "World Heavy Weight Champ in Coups d'Etats". It always stuck with me.

security isn't as bad as you may think. People still go out at night and are able to live just fine.

There are armed guards everywhere. it because of the lack of policemen. By the end of 2011 there will be 14 000 policemen for a population of 9-10 million people. We have 4600 for the SPVM alone for 2-3 million people....

Indeed, the democratic election and the passage of power was the 3rd in Haiti's history that there was a change of government without a coup d'état, assassination of the president, burning of the Palais National (offices of the president like the White House)

I have no first hand experience, just repeating what I heard in a great interview. I had a friend who went down to help out, she said it was releatively no problem, but she did become quite the center of attraction.

Crazy. Because Haiti has no real exports, no one outside of the country seems to care. Like a guy in Cheers once said , "It's a dog eat dog world, and I'm wearing Milk-Bone underwear."

Also give props to the Habs organization ..

PK said the other day on the Team 990 that he called the Habs to ask for them to send him a couple of hats and T-Shirts and he said they sent him a couple bags full of stuff, he didn't expect it.

I lived there for 8 years and my parents are haitian so you can take my word for it :O)

if your friend is white it's normal that she was the centre of attention.

The US cares about what goes on in Haïti (not always in a good way see Wikileaks) because we are close and having boat people near your borders isn't good publicity.

Indeed Haïti has nothing to over in terms of export except it's culture (litterature, paintings etc...) We have cheap labour but since 1986 (end of the Duvalier dictatorship) there hasn't been any stability security and government wise so no one wants to invest. Even the rich haitians (even if they are one of the main reasons why this country is in the situation it's in right now)

i'm done now LOL
