Scientology cult leader, David Miscavige, is mentioned often as a ‘micro-manager’ of many legal matters and issues confronting the expansion of Scientology and Narconon. And with news earlier this week that Narconon was shut out of Hockley Valley after citizens launched a fierce campaign to block the sale and prevent the re-zoning application, Miscavige may be fuming.
Earlier this week, Narconon was shut out of Hockley Valley after citizens launched a fierce campaign to block the sale and prevent the re-zoning application. A community announcement stated: “It is with great excitement that we share the proposed Narconon site has been purchased by a local Hockley family.”
Miscavige’s intelligence branch, “Office of Special Affairs”, often cited as similar to the FBI and KGB, is trying to expand Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon, into Canada. The province of Quebec shut them down for good last year, and now Ontario is on their hit list of proposed locations.
The Scientology leader has sent his best, although somewhat unorganized, Yvette Shank and Clark Carr into the Ontario arena. Both flubbed attempts to secure property in Hockley Valley, Ontario, last week to open a 24 bed Narconon. Now, it appears Cambridge, Ontario, is next on their agenda.
Yvette Shank is the Canada director of “Office of Special Affairs” (OSA), and also the president of Scientology in Canada. Clark Carr is the president of Narconon International in California. Both are well known to mislead the public and media by twisting the truth and ‘spin-doctoring’ questions asked by reporters.
One concerned citizen in Ontario says, “Scientology are heavily trying to infiltrate the community, going so far as advertising on buses, and going door to door trying to gain community support,” said one source earlier today.
Another comment today from a concerned Cambridge citizen, “… greatly concerned with what Narconon can possibly do to negatively impact his community and was happy to see our [Hockley Valley’s] fight, and didn't know what to do to get this stopped in his community.”
Opening a new Narconon in Ontario will not be an easy task for Scientology’s Clark Carr and Yvette Shank, considering the public is now aware and informed about how dangerous this cult operates. Even though it appears that Scientology leader, David Miscavige, is willing to throw millions into the Narconon expansion in Canada, public outcry has more power than money – Hockley Valley citizens proved what Canadians are capable of.
Perhaps David Miscavige may want to re-think his Canada agenda and just accept that his cult is not welcome in the great far north – so far receiving a cold reception indeed.
