One of the few Scientology orgs in the world that does not need a NEW building to be purchased for the Great Ideal Org Boondoggle is Toronto. This org was purchased in the late 70’s pursuant to the LRH BIC (Building Investment Committee) program.
Yes, more than 10 years AFTER the launch of David Miscavige’s “Ideal Org Strategy” for Planetary Clearing, Toronto, the CONTINENTAL Org for Canada remains unrenovated. Not only not much Planetary Clearing, but it seems not much Canadian Clearing. Or even Toronto Clearing….
So, in desperation, the org with the largest field in Canada (it used to be one of the largest orgs in the world) has come up with a new fundraising technique. Because after 10 years they could not even scrape together the cash to install the FART Div 6 and renovate their building (in the face of MASSIVE, STRAIGHT UP AND VERTICAL EXPANSION??? How can this be?)
No doubt at the direction of CLO Canada (which shares the building with Toronto Org), the other orgs now play a “game” for THEIR org to become a “Humanitarian” by fundraising $100,000 for Toronto. Huh?? And note, these Scientology Orgs don’t qualify as “humanitarians” by doing good work in their community or helping people — their humanitarian status is judgedby how much money they send!
And its not even limited less successful orgs than Toronto (wonder how those other even smaller orgs are going to become “Ideal”). Even Halifax, a MISSION, is expected to raise money for Toronto!!
Buffalo — Again!
And making another appearance in the Hall of Shame — BUFFALO. Not only sucking bucks for their infamous “Non E” program, but to make Toronto “Ideal” (really outpointy as Buffalo’s Continental Org is New York in the good old USA).
This desperation for dollars for buildings and renovations is becoming farcical….
Our Toronto Special Correspondent sent in these “promo” pieces (and more for a later date):
For those with eagle eyes, the guy in the top photo is Mark Hanna — former CO OSA ANZO and father of Scarlett DeBoer who has eventually arrived back in the world from the RPF.
The “Genius” Award
And a special mention to the new category dreamed up below — “The Genius Award” — which could not be more inappropriately named. The woman in this photo is Carol Martiniano/Rush/Nolan (I might have missed some) ex- DCO Internal OSA International.
World Class Gold Humanitarians
Running out of superlatives to describe the humanitarianism of their biggest
suckers contributors, they have adopted the IAS “scale of superlatives”, but I wonder what comes after “World Class”? Universal? Galactic? Only time will tell.
