Claude Lapointe revient de loin — Le Journal de Québec
Type: Press
Author(s): Albert Ladouceur
Source: Le Journal de Québec
Le match des vieilles jambes du Canadien et des Nordiques représentait plus qu’une rencontre amicale pour Claude Lapointe. Elle se voulait sa première sortie dans son ancien milieu de travail à quelques semaines de la fin d’une longue cure de désintoxication. Grâce à l’aide et aux outils que lui a remis le centre de réhabilitation pour toxicomanes Narconon, de Trois-Rivières, Lapointe croit qu’il a brisé sa dépendance à la cocaïne, cette poudre blanche qui a mis fin à sa carrière et ...

Scientology link at Montessori school alarms parents — CBC
Type: Press
Source: CBC
Some parents are upset with a study method introduced by a Montessori school in northwest Toronto, which they say has its roots in the Church of Scientology. Parents said the owner of the Bambolino Montessori Academy, a private school, told parents last week that it was introducing a new learning method called applied scholastics. Janice Blundon said parents like her weren't given a choice when the dean at her son's school told them they'd be implementing the study technique. "I let ...

Letters / Fair play for Scientology Re: "Campaign of harassment or just a wild imagination?" (Gazette, Aug. 16) — Montreal Gazette
Type: Press
Source: Montreal Gazette
Re: "Campaign of harassment or just a wild imagination?" (Gazette, Aug. 16). Because of the outrageous allegations in this story about the Church of Scientology I feel the need to respond. First of all, we don't know the name or whereabouts of the so-called "anonymiss," nor have we tried to find out. Her claims are ludicrous and, to be charitable, the product of her wild imagination. However, the campaign she and her "anonymous" comrades are involved in is, by their own ...

Campaign of harassment or just a wild imagination? — Montreal Gazette
Type: Press
Source: Montreal Gazette
Anonymous is the name of a new worldwide group that communicates mostly online and protests against the Church of Scientology. Critics say the church, founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, uses secretive practices, makes cult-like demands, extorts money from its members and harasses those who claim to expose the truth about it. Which explains the anonymity central to the anti-Scientology group. In February, anti-Scientology activists in Montreal joined others around the world in the organization's first simultaneous masked protest, ...

School unaware of link to Scientologists — Vancouver Sun

Author(s): Janet Steffenhagen

A Vancouver principal said his school was uninformed when it invited a group affiliated with the Church of Scientology to speak to a student assembly last month about human rights. John Bevacqua, of St. Patrick regional secondary school, said he hadn't been aware that Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is part of the Scientology movement until it was brought to his attention by a staff member shortly after the group finished its presentation. "It was very unfortunate that they were ...

The Post editorial board on Britain's censorship of a Scientology protest sign: A defeat for free expression — National Post
Type: Press
Author(s): Marni Soupcoff
Source: National Post
It may be one thing for freedom of expression to be an object of controversy in Canada — which is, after all, a somewhat tenuous experiment in democracy and federalism, one whose final shape and outcome may yet remain to be determined — but it is quite another to see it tormented in Great Britain, the historical anchor of most of the liberties we take for granted. When Britain injures what the rest of regard as British principles, it is a ...

Kofi Annan, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Voltaire, L. Ron Hubbard. One of these things is not like the other. If you said “L. Ron Hubbard,” then you are correct. On May 12th, the Youth for Human Rights International organization came to our school and hosted an assembly on human rights. For the uninformed, this may have seemed like an ordinary assembly to raise awareness on an issue that we, as Catholics, should be aware of. Sure, this got the point ...

Type: Blog
Source: The Frame Problem
Here is a video of “Reverend” Yvette Shank, President of the “Church” of Scientology Canada, speaking to a protester on an April 20 mini-raid protest in Toronto. Shank asks the protester why she is not wearing a mask. The protester says she is not wearing a mask on account of the warm weather and because she is not afraid of CoS and does not think that the CoS could find her anyway. Shank says that CoS would not even bother trying ...

La Commission des citoyens pour les droits de l'homme (CCDH), un organisme basé à Québec, distribue ces jours-ci dans la capitale une brochure visant à dénoncer le travail des psychiatres qui prescrivent des médicaments aux enfants souffrant d'un déficit d'attention.

La scientologie est une entreprise ultramoderne qui a aussi des activités séculières. Par exemple, en 1966, Ron Hubbard fondait avec un collègue Narconon une cure de désintoxication qui compte aujourd'hui plus d'une centaine de centres dans le monde, dont un à Trois-Rivières. En plus d'être une cure de désintoxication, Narconon s'est donné pour mission d'instruire les jeunes sur les méfaits de la drogue en donnant des conférences dans de nombreuses écoles de la province. L'atelier offert dans les écoles, appelé La ...

The truth about Scientology Yvette Shank, National Post Published: Monday, March 03, 2008 Jonathan Kay's article on Scientology and its founder L. Ron Hubbard ("In fear of Xenu," Jan. 18.) certainly didn't give the picture of the religion I have known for the past 40 years. From a very young age I found myself asking many questions: Who am I?

The Church of Scientology plans to spend up to $10 million to convert a landmark building in the Exchange District into a church and community outreach centre. Rev. Yvette Shank, president of the church's Canadian office in Toronto, said the church plans to undertake a major refurbishing of the 115-year-old Peck Building, which it quietly acquired last March for a previously unheard of price for the Exchange of $2.2 million. "We love it," Shank said of the six-storey, brick-and-stone building at ...
