    On Friday, Feb. 25, 2011, a one-hour hidden-camera investigation will be broadcast in French at 7 P.M. on the TVA network in Montreal. The name of the program is JE (Journalisme d'enquête = "Investigative Journalism") and it exposes scams and injustices. The program usually features 3 segments on different subjects, but the entire program will be devoted to Scientology.

    The program is simulcast on the network's website:

    Here is a 15-second promo for the program with English subtitles:

    It just keeps on coming, doesn't it? This is excellent news. Another sizable nail in the coffin of Hubbardism, I expect.

    (My French is far from perfect, and I might miss some of the nuances in the report. Can we expect subtitles throughout?) Anyway, please let us know when it's available on-line.

    Boy, they really are the bad news story of the times! :thumbsup::dieslaughing:

    I think this presages major wounds being inflicted on them and their continuing scam and misbehavior. I predict this also leading to political action that will constrain them.

    The article is also available online in French at the Journal de Québec's website:

    Nice reporting

    4 months is hardly enough time to get a job working in scio company or have your kid get hard core regged for the sea org. :confused2: 4 months could be enough time for someone to question their friends and family "intentions". :duh: 4 months gets you intro feel good stuff but not enough of the pressure. :unsure: I wonder if they attended events? It's tough to explain "gazing" at someone or "touching" things. I would hope that the connection between indoctrination and eventual deconstruction is represented in this expose. :yes: I still struggle to articulate it myself in here! That is what is needed to really enlighten people.

    Good. The more exposure the more their source of income from new people is shut down.

    Oh, anybody know why DM needs a bullet proof SUV - is he as paranoid as the old man was?

    Should be beaming into the homes of Montreal as I type. Fingers crossed for a capture and English subtitles some time soon.
