      MONTREAL - The federal Greens are hoping a former NHL tough guy will
      boost the party's profile and help it to score big in the next
      election.

      Party leader Elizabeth May named Georges Laraque as a deputy leader of
      the party on Saturday.
      ...
      With his massive frame and wide smile, the 33-year-old has become an
      eye-catching proponent for animal rights in Quebec.

      His interest in the cause was sparked when he was asked to be the
      French voice for a documentaryexposing the inhumane treatment of
      animals in various industries.

      The muscle-bound athlete soon announced he would become a vegan,
      meaning he doesn't eat meat and animal-derived products like milk and
      eggs.

      Montreal-born Laraque later helped launch two raw vegan restaurants in
      the city. Photos on the establishments' website show a grinning
      Laraque with his arm around Pamela Anderson, another prominent
      Canadian animal rights advocate.
