Canada’s KFCs Score with Vegetarian Hockey Player

Published by PETA.

What do you get when you combine our favorite hockey player with one of our favorite faux-chicken sandwiches?


Georges Laraques and KFC


Hat trick! Georges Laraque was so impressed by a Canadian KFC’s vegan sandwich, he ordered two more to go.

While there is one major animal offense that keeps Canada in the penalty box, KFCs in Canada offer an awesome vegan sandwich—and they are also making efforts to phase in controlled-atmosphere killing. Partner that with Georges Laraque’s insatiable hunger for animal liberation and I’d say you have one of the sweetest assists Canada’s seen in some time.
