Over 2 months ago, yourself, Aline and I met in Montreal to go over the
situation of the media attacks on Radio-Canada and other medias and the
statement made by the Minister of Health on television that a new
bill/law would be tabled at the Quebec legislative assembly in the Fall
of 2008 to regulate or control drug detox and/or drug rehab activities
such as those taking place at Narconon 3-Rivers.
My recommendation to you – based on my 25-year experience in public
affairs including holding the post of DSA in the province of Quebec for
over 20 years – was that NN need to first and right away – asap –
establish the extent and nature of the threat or risk so that you would
know asap what Narconon is facing or dealing with, and thus be in a
position to then correctly estimate the situation and the extent and
nature of the handling needed to properly handle the situation!
The truth was that you did/do not really know what this law is about. How
can NN handle an unknown threat? Obviously, the first thing to do is to
find out what this law is about, and what is the sit between NN and the
For that specific purpose, I recommended that you (or someone like you
who knows well NN activities and the activities of other drug rehab/detox
groups in Quebec) to go right away – asap – do a few visits in Quebec
City at the Ministry of Health and Social Services and meet with
governement officials who are overseeing the area of drug detox and drug
rehab – and who are likely the guys who are writing the new law and who
are making recommendations to the Minister – to find out what is the
contents and extent of the law that is to come out in the Fall of 2008.
Also, to do so very overtly as a NN staff so that you find out exactly
what they think about NN and what needs to be handled. In other words,
find out from the horse’s mouth so to speak! Two (2) major targets: 1)
gathering basic and essential information and; 2) starting the PR
handling right away with the people who must be handled!
You agreed that was the right thing to do and you agreed it was to be
done right away, asap so that you would be able to meet with them before
they would go in Summer vacation… You were also supposed to let me know
the results of those meetings so that I could assist with your writing a
tailor-made handling or plan to handle the actual situation.
I have heard nothing from you since then so I do not know if you did any
visits with the relevant officials at the Ministry of Health in Quebec
City. If no such visits have been done, then it is likely that Narconon
3-Rivieres is back in the same position that it was 2 months ago…
except that NN 3-Rivieres is that much closer to having to deal with a
possibly very ominous situation that cannot yet be properly assessed and
handled until such visits and data gathering activities are made.
Please check what LRH says about dealing with a Black Panther!
As you know NN is not the Church and the Church is not going to and
cannot meet with government officials on behalf of Narconon. No Church or
DSA staff can do the job for you. Either you do it or someone else at or
for NN does it. In any event, it must be confronted and done. The faster
it is confronted the better and the better chances NN will have to handle
the situation. I can only offer advices and the above is about the best
advices I can give you my friend!
I am always willing to talk with you and offer data or advices.

Thank you for your communication, and for your advise throughout this
episode, I did use a lot of your recomendation to handle this situation.
You proposed to me: establish the extent and nature of the threat or
risk so that you would know asap what Narconon is facing.
Which I did, on multiple occasions. I have a very good communication line
with the Office of M. Sebastion Proulx, who is the Deputy of the Mauricie
Region,which includes Trois-Rivieres, he is also the Official Opposition
House Leader and Official Opposition critic for education.
On top of that he is also the right-hand man of M.Dumont who is the
leader of the Official Opposition at the Quebec Parliament.
M.Proulx does obviously sit at the Parliament of Quebec.
Everytime I met with the deputy or his representative, I asked them if
something was coming, any change at the parliament or any new law was
about to be proposed or voted, or any talks about the accreditation for
drug rehab; Is the accreditation’s going to be mandatory ? Is the
governement going to do any change about the already established
Each and every time they told me that nothing was going on, no change
whatsoever, no new laws, no enforcement of the accreditation, nothing on
the agenda at the parliament on that matter neither.
So, there is apparently no threat or risk, change or proposition to
control drug rehab and NN Trois-Rivieres of any form (as of 2 weeks
On top of that, as you probably know, the former Minister of Health and
Social Services, that did make a statement on Radio-Canada, M. Phillipe
Couillard, is no longer on post, he gave his resignation about a month
ago. the New Minister of Health and Social Services apparently has a new
agenda and drug rehabilitation is not one of his mandate, or at least not
something he wants to work on. I got these information from the
representative of M.Proulx himself about 2 weeks ago.
To my knowledge there is no more threat pending on top of Narconon Trois-
Rivieres head. I keep my eyes and ears open and talk with the
Representatives of the Office of M.Proulx regularly.
We will keep applying FLORISH AND PROSPER and the enemy will fall into
apathy, just like M.Couillard giving his resignation from one of the most
powerful post you can have at the Parliament !!!
I will keep you updated on any future communication that I will have with
M.Proulx’s office, so that you are in the know.
I will most likely meet with them next week-end (26-27July) and the 4th
of September, both time on occasion where Narconon Trois-Rivieres is the
Major Sponsor of a large scale event ( Le Monaco and Pro-Am Golf
Tournament for Interval).
Thank you for your time, help and consideration.
