    April 8, 2014: David Love refuses to sign Non Disclosure agreement with Narconon Trois-Riveres following a Quebec Human Rights Commission Resolution Decision that found Narconon in violation of numerous human rights violations and abuses at their drug rehab center in Quebec. Narconon threatened the 3 Plaintiffs/Victims with filing Bankruptcy if ALL three did not sign agreement. Quebec Human Rights Commission Resolution Decisions will be released to Media in due course.

    David Love

    Brave and incorruptible

    The courage is not for one not being feared , the courage is when, despite dangers and fear, one goes further to encounter the tiger on his own land.
    To be brave is to presue such a fight, alone.

    One lesson you gave David, is that something can be done about it, despite you began this fight alone, very much shaken, after you left Narconon with almost no legal datas or extensive knowledge of what the organization was,
    you are presently one of the very rare who used the legal system , governemental agencies and human rights commissions to bring them to act - and you succeded to have these guys to act.

    You did amazinf work to get all the datas and spend thousands of hours to prepare and document all your complains.

    Many would, at that point, take the money, and get some restfull peacefull time while going silent, but you still keep going on your goals which are sincerely toward preventing much more people to be hurt.

    You have walked a ver tough road
    You deserve many thanks and respect for what you are doing
    and congratulations for your wins, which for sure, have saved lot of suffering and probably some lives


    May life be generous to you!

    I may have this wrong, but I think...

    The Quebec Human Rights Commission proposed a resolution to an active case - NN pays DL a certain sum for moral damages & another certain sum for punitive damages. (See 1:45 on video.)

    After that proposed resolution was offered by QHRC in January 2014, it appears NN attorneys contacted DL's attorney(s) and demanded DL sign a non-disclosure agreement ("NDA"), a condition NOT included in QHRC's proposed resolution.
    DL advised his attorney(s) he will NOT sign an NDA. (Yay, DL!)
    DL's attorney(s) were also informed by the NN attorneys that:
    (a) all 3 plaintiffs must sign an NDA; and,
    (b) if all 3 plaintiffs don't sign individual NDAs, NN will file bankruptcy and none will be paid owed damages as QHRC proposed.

    What I don't understand is whether the QHRC can now turn their "proposed resolution" into a final order* which compels NN to pay the 3 plaintiffs their owed damages. Can QHRC simply restate their original "proposed resolution" adding that no non-disclosure agreements are permitted/authorized?

    *If such a final order can be issued from QHRC, can it be appealed by NN?
    Would such an appeal move the case from QHRC to (traditional) Canadian appellate courts?

    Bravo, David Love. :clap:

    Jurisdiction and Remedy Powers

    The Human Rights Tribunal is a specialized tribunal. More specifically, it is competent to dispose of disputes related to unlawful discrimination (section 10) or harassment (section 10.1) based on variety of grounds set out in the Chartersuch as race, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, religion, social condition, handicap or the use of any means to palliate a handicap. It can also hear matters related to the exploitation of aged or handicapped persons (section 48), as well as matters related to affirmative action programs (section 86).

    To illustrate, the Charter prohibits distinctions, based on the grounds mentioned, that compromise anyone's right to full and equal enjoyment of various protected rights, including the right to make a juridical act such as a residential lease (section 12), to have access to public transportation or a public place (section 15), or to not suffer discrimination during the hiring process or on the job (section 16).

    With regard to harassment, the Tribunal punishes vexatious statements, acts or requests that are related to a prohibited ground of discrimination and are characterized by continuity due to repetition or intrinsic seriousness. In this connection, the Charter prohibits, among other things, inappropriate words or actions related to sex, race or sexual orientation of a person who, despite having expressed her disagreement, suffers injury because the person responsible for the words or actions continues to produce them or because the words or actions, in matters of assault for instance, are particularly harmful. Indeed, in the latter case, the proof of an isolated but serious act can establish the existence of harassment prohibited by the Charter.

    Also noteworthy is the fact that the protection the Charter provides against any form of exploitation of aged or handicapped persons due to their particular vulnerability applies as much to material and economic situations as to abuses of moral and psychological nature.

    The Charter also binds the State (section 54). Therefore, all of these questions can be brought before the Tribunal, as much in matters of purely private relations between individuals as in disputes related to legislative or governmental activities.

    In the event of unlawful interference with any right or freedom protected by the Charter, the Tribunal can order any measure required to make such interference cease and to provide compensation for the moral or material prejudice resulting from it (section 49). More systemic remedies may be added to these individual ones to ensure that the interference identified truly does cease and to prevent its repetition in the future. Unlike other human rights laws in Canada, the Charter does not set a limit on the amount of compensation paid to a victim. When unlawful interference with a protected right is also intentional, punitive damages may be awarded as well.


    Any person wishing to institute proceedings before the Tribunal because she believes she has been the victim of discrimination, harassment or exploitation prohibited by the Chartermust first file a complaint with the Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse (section 74).

    The Commission will determine whether the complaint is admissible and, if it is, proceed with a non-adversary investigation. It will then exercise its discretion and decide whether or not the matter should be brought before a tribunal. In the affirmative, the Commission will file an application on behalf of the complainant, before the chosen court (section 80). When the Commission decides not to pursue a remedy for his benefit, the Charter provides that a complainant can come before the Human Rights Tribunal at his own expense (section 84). However, in a leading decision, the Québec Court of Appeal considerably limited the scope of the individual remedy before the Tribunal by deciding that a complainant may not submit an application to the Tribunal unless the Commission has concluded that the complaint is founded, but has nevertheless decided not to institute judicial proceedings.

    The Tribunal functions according to a special set of rules of proof and procedure that enable it to render justice effectively and expeditiously (sections 114 et seq.). A complement to those rules is provided by the Rules of Procedure and Practice of the Human Rights Tribunal, adopted by the president with the assistance of the majority of the other members (section 110).

    Out of a concern for access for all, the Tribunal sits in all judicial districts in Québec (section 119).


    The plaintiff must file an application introductive of suit at the office of the Court of Québec in the district where the person on whom the conclusions may be imposed has her domicile or, where that is not possible, her residence or principal business establishment (section 114). Within 15 days of the filing of the application, the plaintiff must file a factum setting out his pretensions (section 115).

    The clerk of the Tribunal serves the factum on the parties, which may include, in addition to the defending party, a person or organisation active, for instance, in defending human rights and freedoms, if the Tribunal is satisfied that she has a sufficient interest to intervene (section 116). Within 30 days of the service of the factum, the defending and interested parties may (but are not obliged to) file their respective factums, in which case the Tribunal will serve them on the plaintiff (section 115).

    Upon expiry of the time limits for filing proceedings, the clerk of the Tribunal sets the date of the hearing, after consulting the various parties (section 120). All parties are entitled to representation by counsel.

    Like any other court of justice of first instance, the Human Rights Tribunal hears full evidence, brought by witnesses for each party, and disposes of the parties' claims in a judgment with reasons. Subject to the exceptions expressly provided for in the Charter, the Tribunal is not required to comply with the special rules of evidence applicable in civil matters. Provided it is bound by the general principles of justice, it may admit any evidence that is useful and relevant to an application and allow any means of proof (section 123). The Code of Civil Procedure serves only in an accessory way, and the Tribunal reserves its right to adapt it as required to ensure more flexible handling of each case (section 113).

    The decisions rendered by the Tribunal become executory when they are filed in the office of the Court of Québec in which the application was filed, or when they are homologated by the Superior Court (section 130). It is possible to appeal from a final decision of the Tribunal before the Court of Appeal of Québec with leave from one of the judges thereof (section 132).

    So, am I up to speed here? David (and two others) sued Narconon in Quebec for damages relating to Narconon's operation of a treatment facility (at Trois Rivieres perhaps?). Some Canadian Citizen's Rights office advised Narconon to pay and N agreed but only if all of them signed a non-disclosure agreement or gag order, which I suppose would stop David dead in his tracks as far as giving evidence against Narconon, Quebec is concerned.

    David refused their offer. He is by no means finished with Narconon. I don't think he ever will be.

    Predictably the cult is very angry and is now threatening to file bankruptcy so that they have no resources out of which to pay his original claim. But David 'Lionheart' Love isn't in this for the money anyway, something CoS, sitting on its billions of dollars, finds difficult to understand.

    The sheer lunacy.

    Somehow right now NN has an appropriate mix of assets and liabilities to pay David Love and will pay it provided the NDAs are signed.

    By appropriate mix of assets and liabilities I mean that they do not pass the "bankruptcy test", that is they cannot file bankruptcy

    However if the NDAs are not signed then suddenly NN does not have the approprite mix of assets and liabilites and will file bankruptcy.

    How stupid does NN and the Church of Scientology think the world is?

    I still dont get it. Why is NN trying to pay David Love? He was a staff member at the time of these student situations correct?

    It would be good if the Quebec Human Rights Commission could get an injunction against NN filing for bankruptcy under the circumstances as they are clearly threatening this as blackmail - NDA for carrying out QHRC's resolution. NN and the cult - true to form.

    Documents will be submitted first thing Monday morning and CC'ed to Government Officials to address this ^^^ and other matters.

    WE HAVE a NEW GOVERNMENT in Quebec now, as of last Monday! GREAT NEWS:happydance:

    St-Arnaud lost his seat in last Monday's provincial elections and his party was defeated. No date has yet been set for the
    handover of power and no cabinet appointments have yet been announced.

    " ... to the Department of Justice and Attorney General. As Bertrand St-Arnaud lost his seat in last Monday's provincial elections,
    these documents will be directed to the new Liberal Premiere of Quebec, Philippe Couillard."

    Born on June 26, 1957 in Montreal, Philippe Couillard earned his doctorate in medicine in 1979 and neurosurgery degree in
    1985 from Université de Montréal, a specialist certificate from Collège des médecins du Québec and a specialist certificate
    from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in 1985.

    David, that's TERRIFIC news! Quebec will be safe from those scamming fiends for a long time, now. :happydance:

    To say you are amazing is such an understatement.

    You changed Quebec. You changed Canada. You radically changed the safety net of the Narconon vultures throughout the world.
