Think it was anything to do with the sketchy entity known as the CHLPA?

Laraque being a fraud surprises people?

He made a career of collecting paycheques from professional hockey organizations despite him doing nothing.

He'll plead guilty because the Crown attorney isn't in his weight class and it would be against the code to fight him.

So he was involved with synthetic ice?

Hadn't heard that before.

Boy, Laraque sure is keeping himself busy. NDP, CHLPA, hawking juicers and synthetic ice.

Everything he's involved with is a bit sketchy though, for some reason.

Woa, yeah, the Green party. My apologies. Bit of a brain fart there.

Green Peace and PETA are right up sketch alley as well.

Too easy to make jokes with "Laraque" and "fraud".

Is he still a member of the green party ? Because if he is and he's found guilty he can say goodbye to his political career.

If I remember correctly, Laraque is also involved in some animal protection groups as some have mentioned. He is part of a documentary on bacon and how pigs are mistreated in the industry.

Probably about how he told the habs he was an enforcer and after his first year never did his job.
