Caring for mom key as Montreal’s Chris Boucher cashes in with Raptors .
At age 16, Chris Boucher dropped out of school and was working as a part-time cook and dishwasher at a St-Hubert BBQ outlet, earning less than $10 per hour, to help his impoverished family living in St-Michel. A decade later, and after signing a two-year, US$13.5-million contract with the Toronto Raptors, Boucher could probably buy one of the chicken and ribs establishments. That thought brought a smile to his face Wednesday during a video conference, although the second year of the deal reportedly isn’t guaranteed. Otherwise, Boucher remained largely stoic throughout the 30-minute conference while insisting money won’t change him.
