Rights of drug addiction patients violated: ruling

Scientology-linked Narconon exploited and abused those it purported to be treating: Human Rights Commission

“It’s more important for me to get Narconon exposed as one of the most dangerous, quasi rehab centres in the world,” says David Love, who won a Quebec Human Rights Commission case against the drug rehab centre linked to the Church of Scientology.

Four years after he left Narconon Trois-Rivières, and two years after the so-called drug rehabilitation centre was shut down by the public health agency, David Love has been vindicated by the Quebec Human Rights Commission, which concluded the centre exploited and abused him — financially, physically and mentally — along with two other complainants.

Love, who was first a patient then an employee at Narconon until he realized it was closely linked to the Church of Scientology, said the commission’s recent decision was a “global win” against Narconon, which continues to run drug rehabilitation centres in several countries — putting patients’ lives at risk.

“Some say I’m in it for the money, but it’s not true — I want to help the addicts,” said Love, a native of B.C. who has stayed in Montreal to fight Narconon, first before the Quebec Labour Tribunal, then before the Human Rights Commission.

Both agencies mediated in his favour and against Narconon, an organization vaunted by Scientologists like actors Kirstie Alley and John Travolta.

“This isn’t just about criticizing Narconon and Scientology,” Love said. “It’s about saving lives. Drug addiction is an epidemic and I want to help addicts avoid the pitfalls of these pseudo treatment centres.”

Love wouldn’t disclose the amount the commission has proposed Narconon pay Love and the two other plaintiffs, also former patients, in moral and punitive damages. But he confirmed the total amount is in the “six figures.”


Calls for comment made Tuesday to the Montreal office of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights, a “mental health watchdog” co-founded by the Church of Scientology, were not returned.

Long day today with early morning meeting in Montreal and just arrived home at 10:15 PM after day job.
Emails received today from Lawyer, President of Human Rights Commission, and one from Minister of Justice.
Going to be a busy long weekend compiling more evidence documents for government agencies. We're not done
yet in Canada with pending legal matters against Narconon, Scientology, et al .....

Times are a changing. Maybe miscavige is a blood-relative of Conrad Black

In 2004, a shareholder-initiated prosecution of Black began in the United States over $80 million in assets claimed to have been improperly taken or inappropriately spent by Black.[5] He was convicted of three counts of fraud and one count of obstruction of justice in a U.S. court in 2007 and sentenced to six and a half years' imprisonment. In 2011, two of the charges were overturned on appeal, and he was re-sentenced to 42 months in prison on one count of mail fraud and on the one count of obstruction of justice.[6] Black was released on May 4, 2012.[7]

Yeah, like these guys would see any money, regardless.

Nice to get this with my breakfast cereal. If it is a duplicate so much the better!

Go for it, David, and be careful out there!

Me is being very careful and hanging with close friends often. This ^^^ News Story was from the same Reporter "ARCHIVED" from 2012.

This one below from this same Reporter yesterday: BY CATHERINE SOLYOM, THE GAZETTE APRIL 15, 2014:

The Photographer [Vincenzo D'Alto] from yesterday's Story, was the same guy one who did the photo shoot for the 11 Page McLean's Magazine News Story
we did back in 2012:



"Just sign over your employment insurance
every two weeks," he recalls Wold instructing him. "I was there the next day."

Love did not then know that all Narconon facilities, including the one in Trois-Rivieres, function as Scientology affiliates, operations that critics say have funnelled substantial revenues to a network of corporations controlled by the church.
