Here's an article with quotes from Georges Laraque speaking about his vegan lifestyle... basically he decided that he would stop using and consuming all animal products after watching the documentary, Earthlings, which detailed the suffering of animals used for human consumption (food, clothing, accessories, entertainment). http://www.faceoff.com/hockey/teams/story.html?id=2091872&add_feed_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.faceoff.com%2Fscripts%2FSP6Atom.aspx%3Fid%3D898337
