Following a lengthy investigation and further review, the Quebec College of Physicians Review Committee has now released their decision not to discipline or sanction a member of the College. However, the ban on associating with Narconon Trois-Rivieres stands.
On July 27, 2011 the College released their initial findings and stated, “It was found that this physician had been in breach of several of his ethical obligations by associating himself with a drug detoxification centre administering treatment not scientifically recognized in current medical literature, by conducting an incomplete medical assessment, and keeping records of mediocre quality.”
“In keeping with the preventative approach that is part of the mandate to protect the public entrusted to us, it was agreed, by way of written accord with the College, that Dr. Labonte put an end to all relations with Narconon.”
During the initial investigation, the College solicited the opinion of an expert physician on drug dependence, as well as reviewing patient files.
The Quebec Ministry of Health and Social Services continues their inquiry and investigations into the Narconon Trois-Rivieres application to be certified. All treatment centers in Quebec must now be certified. With the recent College decision, Narconon’s future may be doomed.
The spotlight has been focussed on Narconon Trois-Rivieres since April 2008 following the Narconon Trois-Rivieres Expose on CBC TV – Radio Canada, by Emilie Dubreuil. This investigative report exposed the Narconon sauna regime which many physicians and experts claim the Hubbard pseudoscience to be dangerous and possibly life threatening.
A bold and courageous Emilie, exposes the Xenu story, broadcasting to a surprised viewing audience, showing how billions of aliens were sent to earth and murdered. Many executives at Narconon (Scientologists), believe that the remnants of these aliens pollute the human soul to this day and only through the L. Ron Hubbard technology of auditing processes, can humans be cleared of these menaces.
And if the aforementioned were not enough to discourage a battle weary entity, the Quebec Human Rights Commission is moving forward with a number of cases against Narconon Trois-Rivieres and their representatives. Narconon and executives have been under investigation for nearly seventeen months concerning exploitation abuses of patients and discrimination of employees. There are a minimum of four cases with additional complaints pending. Trials could be as soon as summer or fall 2012.
Of serious concern to government agencies, is the Narconon sauna program, which consists of taking large, toxic doses of niacin and other vitamin concoctions, and being in a hot sauna for five hours per day, seven days per week, and for a duration of several weeks nonstop. There are no doctors, nurses, or any other qualified medical staff to monitor, diagnose, and treat adverse reactions to these dangerous and toxic high doses of niacin and other vitamin concoctions.
These vulnerable and ill patients are only monitored by unqualified Narconon staff that examine, monitor, diagnose symptoms, and prescribed their own pseudoscientific vitamin regimes and other Scientology doctrine therapies for patient drug treatment cures. The College of Physicians in Quebec and Ontario are now examining whether Narconon and the Church of Scientology are practicing medicine without a licence.
Scientology’s “Intelligence Director of Canada”, Yvette Shank, has been in Quebec City over the past several months, instead of at her usual Toronto OSA Headquarters. Yvette is also the President of Scientology Canada.
The Church of Scientology has so far failed to gain official recognition as a religion in Canada and failed to win status as a federally registered charity for tax purposes.
On June 25, 1992, seven members of Scientology were convicted for operations against the Ontario Provincial Police, the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The Church of Scientology itself was convicted on two counts of breach of the public trust: infiltration of the offices of the Ontario Provincial Police and the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General. The Church of Scientology was ordered to pay a $250,000 fine. The Church of Scientology became the only Canadian religious organization to be convicted for breaching the public trust (the term ‘religious organization’ being used loosely; the Church of Scientology is not officially recognised by the Canadian Government as a religion).
There comes a time when government and the nations citizens, become tired of oppression and the breaking of laws and regulations by corporations and cults. When vulnerable and ill patient’s health is deliberately put at risk for the sake of greed and profit, perhaps the only solution lies in the reincarnation of the 1992 Scientology criminal and civil convictions in Canada.
