Green Party deputy leader under fraud allegations

MONTREAL – Ex-NHL enforcer and current Green Party deputy leader Georges Laraque has been fired from a business project under a cloud of fraud allegations.

Laraque and former business partner, Montreal-based engineer Marc Filion, formed a company called Super-Glide Canada in 2009 to distribute synthetic ice panels produced by a Florida-based company called Global Synthetic Ice.

Each are accusing the other of stealing from the company, and told QMI Agency separately they are preparing lawsuits against the other.
