    Oh this is so nice to read yet another country is really investigating our toxic cult. :happydance:

    Thanks to all who've helped on this one - it's obvious the journalists have been well-briefed and did a great job because of it. :clap:

  8. Time is relative!

    I dunno honey, they wanted me on staff immediately! (I politely delclined) Maybe things move faster now when they are desperate for more bodies in the shop? :confused2:

    Good job French Canadians! Wish we had more undercover reporting here! :happydance: Great job everyone who had a hand in aiding this investigative reporting!

    Thanks also to MNQL1 for sharing the good news with us here, and for all the good work that he does for the cause!!! :happydance:

    I got into Scientology in Nov 1976 and did the comm course. Within a week I was on staff. By December I was in the Sea Org at St Hill. By January I was on my first Mission. In March I was back in Scotland recruiting people to man up Div 6. That was four months.

    Next segment airs in a few minutes (in French - wish I spoke French). Thanks mnql1!!! I know this is a huge job for you. BRAVO:happydance:

    These segments will be followed by more Political interest. Much more. I had a member of the Canada Parliament from a Western Canada riding contact me a few days ago. This one has power, with clout. I guess it does pay to vote,..., LOL.

    Montreal Anonymous had a lot to do with this TV Show and I commend them for a job well done.:clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:
     
  16. English subtitles?

    Are there any links to the clips with English subtitles? Let me know when, I want to see it! This is a great story!:omg:

    Yes, this is a GREAT story and will have rippling effects right accross Canada and hopefully,..., eventually into the USA.

    The English sub-tittles are being worked on by mnql1 and will take a few days.

    As soon as they are done, (no pressure mnql1), we will be adding these videos to few more we have, and sending them off to three Politicians who have taken a big interest. I have met with two. One Canada Senator and a Provincial Minister of Health. Now we have a Member of the Canada Parliament.

    This is very awesome indeed.

    They just threatened to call the Police on the French Canadian Reporter trying to do an interview. These Reporters turned over a lot of rocks
    to do this expose. Lots of unhappy "Cock A Roches",...,scurrying for safety.......
