Former NHL heavyweight Georges Laraque will today announce that he’s running for the Green Party in Montreal’s Bourassa riding byelection.
And in La Presse today, Laraque pretty well dismissed new Canadiens enforcer George Parros as a guy who will strike fear in the hearts of no one. (story is in French)
Laraque, who played 161 of his 695 NHL games with the Canadiens, will contest the Bourassa riding opened up by the departure of Denis Coderre, who this November will run for mayor of Montreal.
