Nan McLean is an ex-Scientologist from Ontario. In the 1970's she was a major target for Scientology Fair Game. Because of a "gag order" settlement Nan signed with Scientology (after being Fair Gamed for some years), she can't speak out about Scientology any more. So, here's some information about Nan McLean from various sources. Hopefully, these items will provide a clearer picture of what Nan McLean went through at the hands of the Scientology cult.
I'm thinking that when Scientology was trying to get Nan McLean to sign a "gag order" settlement agreement, they never dreamed that in the future someone would find this information about Nan and post it to one place on the internet.
So, even if Nan can't speak about Scientology today, someone like me can use these articles to keep her voice alive.
