Jun 11, 2008 School unaware of link to Scientologists — Vancouver Sun
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 ...
May 26, 2008 The Post editorial board on Britain's censorship of a Scientology protest sign: A defeat for free expression — 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 ...
May 23, 2008 A wolf in sheep's clothing
John Ray Catingub
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 ...

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 ...

Société Radio-Canada (Canada)
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 CCDH prétend que les troubles de l'attention sont une pure invention de la médecine. Dans son dépliant d'information, la CCDH invite le public à visiter son site Internet pour commander un documentaire sur le sujet. Le document reproche aux psychiatres ...

Société Radio-Canada (Canada)
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? What am I? Where do I come from? How can I help my friends and family? And I finally found what ...

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 ...
