Hat Tip to The Wrong Guy for - David Love & The Human Rights Commission in Quebec: https://whyweprotest.net/community/...to-be-bought-by-narconon.117924/#post-2444341 VERDICT: Scientology’s Quebec rehab facility violated human rights of David Love and 2 othersBy Tony OrtegaDavid Edgar Love and two other former patients of a Canadian drug rehab facility run by Scientology’s front group, Narconon, have won a stunning victory from Quebec’s human rights commission.More than three years after Love complained about the way he was treated as a patient and employee of the Narconon Trois-Rivières facility (now closed), the Quebec Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse has produced a scathing finding of fact that Narconon did violate Love’s human rights.“This is a big win,” Love told us during a Skype conversation Wednesday night. Over several years, Love has won several victories against the Narconon facility, which was closed down in 2012 by Quebec health officials who were acting on Love’s complaints and voluminous documentation. He also had earlier won a labor settlement over his work at the facility, and convinced the Quebec College of Physicians to ban a doctor from the facility. But it was the human rights commission that Love especially wanted a result from. (See our previous story with extensive background on his experience as a Narconon patient and employee.)Love was able to bring a complaint to the commission because it investigates cases of discrimination against the “disabled” — and Canada’s supreme court has found that drug addicts fall under that designation. (Narconon fought that application in this case, Love says, but the commission ultimately sided with him.)“They went out and interviewed people right across Canada,” Love says. And he thinks the commission’s decisive statement of findings will reverberate across the country and internationally.“Here Scientology has a ‘Citizens Commission on Human Rights,’ and what happened? They were found to be violating human rights. After a three and a half year investigation, it was found that Narconon violated the human rights of three people. I think this will help people down south and around the world,” he said. The commission agreed with what Love has been saying since he left the Narconon center in 2009 — that the rehab facility’s operations were based in deceptive business practices which put its patients in danger. The commission’s report lays out a damning litany of conditions that were imposed on Love and the other patients.– Charging him considerable amounts for a detoxification program which was not scientifically approved and which involved health and safety hazards; – Failing to provide him with care suited to his medical condition, despite the sums he paid; – Providing information, before and during treatment, which could be misleading as to the likelihood of a successful outcome, and which gave the impression that the results were guaranteed; – Charging him large sums for a service provided by unqualified people; – Forcing him to work and perform various tasks without pay…. – Forcing him to submit to humiliating and degrading practices; – Failing to properly bear the responsibility for confidential information obtained from the complainant after prompting him to open up about personal aspects of his life; – Using controversial teaching methods that were not based on any scientific study; – Submitting him to poor living and food conditions; – Submitting him to forced confinement and coercion.
