The Toronto branch of the Church of Scientology has been fined $250,000 for spying on police and the government during the mid- 1970s. But despite almost a decade of court battles since the largest police raid in Ontario history in 1983, church leaders say they're not about to give up. The church's odyssey through the courts has spawned a legacy of ground-breaking legal decisions interpreting the ability of the state to prosecute the non-profit church. Along the way, the founder of ...

Citing recent cases of sexual abuse involving priests in the Catholic church, Ruby said: "The (Catholic) church wasn't prosecuted, only individuals. Never has a jury been ...

Church of Scientology intelligence officers in the 1970s were "complete zealots" prepared to use illegal means to attack critics, a former official has testified.

Our minds were completely altered," Bryan Levman told an Ontario Court, general division, jury.

For three years, Levman oversaw a series of covert intelligence operations as deputy guardian for Canada, aimed at attacking the "enemies" of Scientology, founded by Hubbard in the mid-1950s. Levman left the church in 1976 in some disillusionment — "it didn't deliver what it ...
