Fraud Accusation Faces Laraque

from Chloe Fedio of the Ottawa Citizen,

Former NHL player turned deputy leader of the Green Party, Georges Laraque, fended off an accusation of fraud made public Monday morning in a press release from a company in the United States, claiming instead that the real fraud was committed by his Canadian partner.

Florida-based Global Synthetic Ice announced Monday that Laraque’s company, Super-Glide Canada, has been dropped as a distributor after an internal investigation revealed “unethical business practices” involving $54,000 worth of funds and products.

Company president Perry Boskus said he decided to sever ties with Super Glide based on allegations of fraud from Laraque’s partner Marc Filion. Filion and Laraque are both listed as directors of Super-Glide Canada, which was incorporated in Nov. 2009.

Laraque’s company the same company that put in the synthetic ice in Winnipeg, which has turned into a headache for the arena authority.  Lots of “did-too, did-not” accusations.
