Declaration of Gerry Armstrong

I, Gerry Armstrong declare:

1. On November 22, 2007, I received the following e-mail letter from
JonathanD.Roth[at]rci.rogers.com:

Dear Mr. Armstrong,
I am the senior producer of OMNI Television and CHNU.10’s daily prime
time current affairs interview program, The Standard. Our guests have
included current Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, former
Mexican President Vicente Fox, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe,
former Chief UN Weapons Inspector Dr. Hans Blix, author Salman
Rushdie, and HRH Prince Edward.

I would like to invite you to be a guest on our program, hopefully
sometime next week. The interview would be two 7-minute segments,
taped in our Surrey studios, and would cover your experience with
Scientology. We generally tape weekdays at 1pm, but I could re-adjust
the time depending on your schedule.

Attached is further information about the program. I look forward to
hearing from you!

Thank you for asking me, and I will do the interview. I don’t have a car,
but I can probably make reasonable arrangements to get to Surrey some

Hi Mr. Armstrong,

I just left a message on your answering machine. We can certainly
provide you with transportation to and from our studios. Just give me a
call when you have the opportunity. My direct line is 604-575-4135 or
cell – 778-999-4558.

Best,

5. Mr. Roth’s answering machine message left November 23 stated:

Hi Mr. Armstrong. It’s Jonathan Roth calling from OMNI Television
CHNU-10 from The Standard. Received your e-mail. Just giving you a
call back. Just wanted to chat a little bit about your story. I actually spent a
little bit of time this morning just going over more aspects to it, and it’s …
wow, you have quite the story. So just give me a call back, 604-575-4135.

3

Or you can reach me on my cell 778-999-4558. Thanks. We’ll talk to you

soon. Bye bye.

6. I spoke with Mr. Roth by phone on November 23. He again expressed his
amazement at my story, particularly Scientology’s efforts over so many years to silence
me. He said that the station would send a car for me at noon on Wednesday, November
28, take me to the studio in Surrey, do makeup, shoot at 1:00 PM and bring me back to
Chilliwack. He said that the interview would air the following week. I questioned him
about his Scientology connections, and explained that the organization runs operations on
me and has even attempted in the past to interview me on camera to compromise or
otherwise harm me. He said he had no connection to Scientology, and that an interne at
the station had alerted him to me and my story. He said that a Vancouver Scientologist
Susan Kerr had been on The Standard previously as a representative of the Multifaith
Action Society. I told Mr. Roth about my current legal situation with Scientology, and
that I was still a target here in British Columbia, and he let me know he was unconcerned.

7. On November 28, a CHNU car arrived at my wife Caroline’s and my
apartment, and a man who said his name is Aaron (sp?) drove me to the station. I met Mr.
Roth, got shown around a bit, got left in the lounge, got made up, met Randall Mark, and
did the interview. It was a format that was new for me, three seven minute unedited
segments with a short intro to each segment from Mr. Mark. I believe I handled and
answered his questions all right, and I know for me the time seemed to evaporate. I think
he asked good questions, and seemed genuinely interested in the subject. He seemed
happy with the interview, as did Mr. Roth and Aaron, who is a technical person in the
studio as well as chauffeur. I had an opportunity to talk with Mr. Roth for several
minutes, both before the interview and afterward in his office. I’d brought with me
printouts of a number of web pages that I thought were relevant in my relationship with
Mr. Roth and Rogers, and I gave or showed him these documents and we discussed
certain facts they contained, as described in paragraphs 8 to 15 that follow.

8. Appended hereto as Exhibit A is a true and correct copy of a printout of a page
from the Church of Scientology of Canada’s “Human Rights” web site identifying
“Reverend Susan Kerr” as the “Human Rights Director for the Church of Scientology” in
Vancouver. Ms. Kerr, by virtue of her position as Scientology’s Human Right Director, is
a beneficiary in the organization’s “contract” with me and in Scientology’s campaign
over the past twenty-one years to suppress and destroy my basic human rights, and the
human rights of the many good people who might act in concert with me. Mr. Roth and I
discussed a debate between Ms. Kerr and me, or another Scientology representative, and I
said I would welcome and be glad to participate in such a debate. Over the many years
that Scientology has labeled and victimized me a “Suppressive Person” no Scientology
representative has ever publicly debated me or even publicly engaged me in reasonable
dialog.

9. Appended hereto as Exhibit B is a true and correct copy of a printout of a page
from the Multifaith Action Society’s (“MAS”) web site listing its Board of Directors,
which included Susan Kerr (Secretary) and Gale Spick (Treasurer). I knew that Ms. Spick

4

is also a Scientologist, and also a beneficiary in Scientology’s contract with me and in the
effort to suppress and destroy basic human rights. The listed MAS Directors also
included Terry Mahoney, which I knew to be the name of Rogers OMNI TV’s General
Manager.

10. Appended hereto as Exhibit C is a true and correct copy of a printout of page
from Rogers OMNI Television’s web site identifying Terry Mahoney as the “General
Manager of Rogers OMNI Television BC (OMNI.10).” The same page also identifies
Mr. Roth as OMNI BC’s “Senior Producer Content.” Mr. Roth confirmed that Terry
Mahoney, the OMNI Manager, had been on the MAS Board of Directors, but Mr. Roth
said he no longer was on the Board.

11. Appended hereto as Exhibit D is a true and correct copy of a printout of a
page from the Multifaith Action Society’s (“MAS”) web site listing “Partnering
Organizations,” which included “OMNI-TV.”

12. Appended hereto as Exhibit E is a true and correct copy of a printout of a
page from the Church of Scientology of Canada’s web site announcing that the
Scientology religion will be included in MAS’s 2007 “Multifaith Calendar.”

The 2007 version will include Scientology and its days of celebration
which are March 13th, the birthday of Scientology Founder L. Ron
Hubbard, May 9th Dianetics Day, celebrating the release of the book
Dianetics: the Modern Science of Mental Health in 1950; Auditor’s Day;
the second Sunday of September which commemorates the work of
Scientology ministers in bringing spiritual freedom to Mankind and
October 7th which recognizes the founding of the International Association
of Scientologists in 1984 and its purpose to expand and safeguard the
Scientology religion.

13. Appended hereto as Exhibit F is a true and correct copy of a printout of two
pages from one of the Scientology organization’s Internet sites, which show that
Scientology and Scientologists falsely and maliciously label and position me as an “anti-
religious extremist.” I explained to Mr. Roth that if he researched my name on the web he
would encounter a great deal of similar material on me disseminated by Scientology, the
cult’s agents, or people forwarding its malevolent intentions toward me. Scientology’s
term for its policy and practice of defaming its victims, and the term for the defamatory
material generated and disseminated, is “Black Propaganda” or “Black PR.” The purpose
for Scientology’s Black PR is, through the willful, organized, multi-channeled and often
covert dissemination of such material, to destroy the reputation, credibility, relationships,
livelihoods and lives of the organization’s victims or targets.

14. Appended hereto as Exhibit G is a true and correct copy of a directive in
Scientology scripture dated 16 February 1969 entitled “Battle Tactics” written by
organization founder Hubbard. I explained to Mr. Roth that this piece of Scientology
scripture contains Mr. Hubbard’s command intention for the war of attrition that the
organization’s pseudomilitary troops are to wage on the “enemy,” the people who

5

comprise the “Suppressive Person” class. I showed Mr. Roth some of Mr. Hubbard’s
belligerent and malevolent intentions and orders in the “Battle Tactics” scripture.

We must ourselves fight on a basis of total attrition of the enemy. So never
get reasonable about him. Just go all the way in and obliterate him.
[…]
One cuts off enemy communications, funds, connections. He deprives
the enemy of political advantages, connections and power. He takes over
enemy territory. He raids and harrasses.
[…]
The prize is “public opinion” where press is concerned. The only safe
public opinion to head for is they love us and are in a frenzy of hate
against the enemy, this means standard wartime propaganda is what one is
doing, complete with atrocity, war crimes trials, the lot. Know the mores
of your public opinion, what they hate. That’s the enemy. What they love.
That’s you.
You preserve the image or increase it of your own troops and degrade
the image of the enemy to beast level.

15. I talked with Mr. Roth about Scientology’s intention and efforts to
dominate and control the media, and warned him that the organization probably
would try to threaten Rogers into not airing the interview. I told him that in this
past summer some Vancouver Film School students had created a project to
interview me about the Scientology v. Armstrong war, and the organization had
threatened VFS and the school had made the students drop the project. Mr. Roth
assured me that Rogers would not be intimidated, and would in fact welcome a
lawsuit from Scientology. I pointed out Hubbard’s statement in “Battle Tactics”
that “A press magnate on your side is a big win,” and Mr. Roth said he couldn’t
believe that Scientology could get any press magnate on its side. I told him that
Australian media magnate James Packer had recently been identified as a
Scientologist, and Mr. Roth googled his name and confirmed this fact. Mr. Roth
let me know in a number of statements and ways throughout our conversations in
the CHNU station that he and his company, OMNI or the Rogers corporations,
were not afraid of Scientology and not concerned about any threat from the
organization.

16. I chatted with Mr. Roth in his office while the video of my interview
with Mr. Mark, I was told, was reviewed to see if it was fine or if something else
was needed from me. It was in some way announced, after perhaps a half hour,
that the interview was good, and Aaron met me to drive me back to Chilliwack.
Mr. Roth said he would send me a DVD of the show when it airs. On the drive,
Aaron and I naturally chatted about Scientology and other things, and he indicated
that he had watched the interview, understood what I was talking about, and
thought my story should be known.

17. On December 3, 2007, “The Standard’s” guest list for that week appeared on
CHNU-TV’s web site and announced my interview for Friday, December 7. Later that
day, I posted the following message to the Usenet newsgroup alt.religion.scientology:

Last week, Randall Mark, the host of CHNU TV’s program The Standard,
interviewed me about the Scientology v. Armstrong war. According to the
station’s web site, the interview will air Friday, December 7 in the
Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Victoria markets at 9:00 PM. Here in
Chilliwack that’s Channel 10.
http://www.chnutv.ca/tv/standard/

On Mark:

[Quote]

Before assuming his position with The Standard Randall Mark was a
professor of Religion, Philosophy and Ethics at Trinity Western University
for six years, and a professor of World Religions at Simon Fraser
University. His writing and research interests have included the interplay

7

of film with spirituality and the importance of inter-religious dialogue in
Canada.

Mark has written numerous articles and book reviews and has recently
penned an academic book exploring the religious and political thought of
Canada’s premiere philosopher, George Grant. He also has extensive
experience as a public speaker and corporate trainer and has developed a
number of seminars that deal with topics such as marital communication,
spirituality and dealing with grief and loss.

[End Quote]
http://www.omnibc.ca/info/press/p_20070910.shtml

A Vancouver Scientology representative OT VIII Susan Kerr has been on
the program in the past, and I proposed to the producer that we meet in a
debate format. Here she’s identified as the cult’s “Human Rights Director.”
http://humanrights.scientology-tor.ca/2006_12_01_archive.html
It would be great to debate her because the Scientology v. Armstrong case
demonstrates that virtually every Scientologist, Ms. Kerr included, is
contracted to suppress and destroy basic human rights. Being the Human
Rights Director for Scientology takes some OT level pecksniffery.

I can’t record the program from TV, but the station promised me a DVD
after it airs, and I’ll do what I can to make it available.

19. On December 7, 2007 at 4:15 P.M. Mr. Roth left a voice mail message that stated:

Hi Mr. Armstrong, it’s Jonathan Roth calling from The Standard, at
CHNU-10 and OMNI Television. Just wanted to touch base with you. A
couple of quick things. First off … You know what, I really need you to
give me a call back. I guess that’s the first thing.

As you would probably suspect, and as … it actually didn’t surprise me …
but … actually it has surprised me, to the vigorous nature of where this
has gone. Representatives of the Church of Scientology have contacted us,
and there’s all kinds of implied … things happening here, in terms of …
litigation, and other things … in terms of us airing the interview with you.

So I am firmly in the court that says that we are going to air this thing.
However, it is not going to air tonight. What we’re doing is going to have
our own lawyers vet this thing and then decide what’s going on. But …
you are right, these people are far more powerful than I ever thought they
were.

So, anyway just to give you a heads-up. And now, what I want you to
understand though, is do not put this on your web site or anything like that
in terms of what’s happening with us right now. Because that could cause
more problems. So at this point we’ll just keep it on the down low, in
terms of when it’s airing. And don’t … if somebody e-mails you and says,
“Hey, I didn’t see that broadcast,” or whatever, don’t say anything. Just
say, “They’re hoping to air it in the future,” and leave it like that. Because,
as I said, you say anything about Scientology contacting us it’s going to
cause more problems, that could sink this thing. So…

Anyway, but I do want you to give me a call back tonight. My number
here at work is 604-575-4135. Or call me on my cell, tonight, any time,
778-999-4558. And give me a call and we can chat, and I’ll just fill you in
with some more details.

9

But as I say, I’m firmly in your court, as are quite a few of us here, and
we’ll see what happens. But at this point it’s in the hands of the lawyers,
and we’ll see what happens. But there are several avenues here to see what
… to push this thing through. So we’ll see what happens. Anyway, it’s not
going to air tonight, but my hope is that it will air in the future.

So … anyway, hang in there. And give me a call when you get the
opportunity. My name is Jonathan Roth. We’ll talk to you soon. Bye bye.

20. Later on December 7, I spoke with Mr. Roth by phone. He said that
Susan Kerr had spoken with him, and had called the station’s general manager
two times. Mr. Roth said that Scientology was threatening to sue, and the station
was not going to air the interview at this time. He said Rogers will have its
lawyers look at it, and vet it. He said that if there’s something that the lawyers
decide shouldn’t be included, we could reshoot that part, and the station would
send a car for me. I didn’t tell him that on November 30, my right canine had
been knocked out, I looked like a pirate, and I’d feel like one in a re-interview
until I somehow got it fixed, which was financially out of reach. I did tell Mr.
Roth that that very day the producer of a story about me for CBC TV News:
Sunday had called and told me that the CBC had killed the story because
Scientology had freaked out the host and the CBC TV executives. I nevertheless
argued that Rogers should be courageous and air the interview as is. Mr. Roth said
he concluded that Scientology was going to sue if the interview aired, regardless
of the content, but the matter was now with the lawyers. He said that if there is
something questionable, it can be reshot. He said that, for example it’s okay to say
L. Ron Hubbard is a liar, because there’s a court document saying it. Mr. Roth
said Ms. Kerr had implied that she had been talking to a Scientology lawyer all
morning. Mr. Roth said that Ms. Kerr had faxed some stuff to the station, which
included something that had been posted on Usenet. He said that whole thing had
gotten more complicated because the Multifaith Action Society had sent a letter
on behalf of Scientology demanding that the station not air the interview. He
repeated his request that I not tell people that Scientology contacted the station
and pressured them, but only tell people the show will air later. I told him that
after the station announced the interview online I had in fact contacted several
people, including journalists, who might have an interest, and gave them the time,
channel, etc. Mr. Roth said that the person at the Multifaith Action Society who
had sent the demand was the Executive Director. I reminded Mr. Roth of his
assertion that Rogers would not be intimidated but would welcome a lawsuit from
Scientology, and he acknowledged that he had said those things. He said he had
no idea how big the organization was and how much power it had.

21. On December 10, I sent Mr. Roth the following e-mail:

I am sending this to anyone I told that CHNU would air an interview
tonight at 9:00 PM. on its program The Standard.

I have been advised that the interview has been pulled. I haven’t yet gotten
to the bottom of this.

I imagine they’ll have something to plug into the hole I left at 9 o’clock, in
case that’s the only channel you get.

Gerry

After The Standard’s online schedule went up, which still announces my
interview by the way, I’d told a small number of people about the
interview in the Vancouver-Fraser Valley areas that know about my
Scientology engagement. These include two writers from the Vancouver
Sun, one from the Chilliwack Times, a couple of Lower Mainland college
students involved in Scientology v. Armstrong pieces, and a CBC
producer, so somebody from this list might contact you. I think that if I
was a journalist I’d be all over this story, and I hope Rogers covers the
story huge, and it makes your career. So there.

I haven’t made any public announcement of the interview not airing,
although, as you know, I earlier announced the show both on my web site
and on the Usenet group alt.religion.scientology. So I’m hoping to hear
back from you about Rogers’ intentions as soon as possible.

Call any time.

Separately I’m sending you a letter I earlier sent to the CBC concerning
my legal situation as it related to their interview and project, and I’d ask
you to forward it to the attorney examining Rogers’ interview.

—–Original Message—–
From: Gerry Armstrong [mailto:gerry@gerryarmstrong.org]

To: ‘Jonathan D Roth’
Subject: Scientology v. Armstrong

Hi Jonathon:

Please read and forward this message to the Rogers attorneys who are
reviewing my interview with Randall Mark for The Standard and studying
my legal situation in light of the threat of litigation you’ve told me from
Susan Kerr as Scientology’s representative if the interview airs.

On November 13, I sent the following e-mail letter to CBC executives
involved in the CBC’s plan to interview me November 21 for its CBC
News: Sunday program.

[Quote]

Gentlemen:

I want to make sure that CBC executives are aware of my legal situation
with Scientology in advance of my interview now set for November 21.

Scientology obtained an injunction against me in California Superior
Court in 1995 that (relative to the interview) prohibits me and persons
acting in concert with me from:
[…]
Facilitating the creation of any work of any kind that discusses, refers to or
mentions Scientology or any of the “beneficiaries;”
Discussing Scientology or any of the “beneficiaries” with anyone not a
member of my immediate family or my attorney.

The “beneficiaries” include all Scientology churches and affiliated
organizations and entities internationally and all of their directors, officers,
employees, volunteers, agents, representatives, successors, assigns and
legal counsel.

My position is that Scientology obtained the injunction by fraud and
duress; but even if Scientology had obtained it lawfully, the injunction on
its face is unlawful. Since Scientology is a religion, the injunction is

12

equivalent to enjoining an individual from discussing Christianity or
Christian churches or Christians; which is patently unlawful and judicially
unenforceable in any rational democratic country.

Scientology’s position, moreover, is that the organization and all the
beneficiaries may say anything they want about me, no matter how false
or defamatory, and do anything they want to me and I cannot respond. If I
say anything in my defense, I am in violation of the injunction.

Scientology claims that anything I say about the Scientology religion or
the religionist beneficiaries damages them in the amount of $50,000 per
utterance. The organization has been successful in getting the California
courts to award this amount in liquidated damages. This e-mail message,
for example, Scientology would claim, is worth $50,000 x 3 (recipients) =
$150,000.

Scientology has also been successful in getting the California courts to
enforce the injunction against me, and since 1997 has obtained a series of
contempt orders that have resulted in jail sentences and fines. These
contempts of court are principally for my discussions in Europe and
Canada of my Scientology religious experiences and beliefs.

I got the jail time and fines discharged at trial in 2004, but Scientology got
the California Court of Appeal to reverse the trial court. This past
September, Scientology got the trial court (Marin County, CA) to reinstate
the sentences and fines.

I want the CBC to understand that although Scientology has used the
California courts and the California injunction against me, and has
successfully maintained the injunction despite my challenges to it and its
obvious unconstitutionality and impossibility, Scientology has never
attempted to judicially enforce the injunction against “persons acting in
concert with me” or against media organizations or their personnel. See,
e.g., the post-1995 media listed here:
http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/media/index.html

At the same time, Scientology has threatened a number of individuals with
enforcement of the injunction, including here in Canada. See, e.g., this
letter to University of Alberta Professor Stephen Kent:
http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/cult/abelson-ltr-kent.html

And Scientology this past summer successfully threatened the Vancouver
Film School into dropping a film project about my story that some of the
school’s students were producing. I have webbed a declaration I wrote
detailing the VFS experience.
http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/legal/decl-2007-08-16.html

13

In my opinion, although Scientology might threaten the CBC with the
California injunction, Scientology will not take any legal action in Canada
against the CBC.

Obviously, to tell my story the injunction and other orders I’m subject to
must be dealt with. In fact, Scientology’s successful legal assault on my
freedoms makes my story as compelling and worth telling as it is, and in
the public interest. But I don’t want the CBC to be surprised by the
injunction and my legal situation *after* the interview, and *then* cancel
the piece if Scientology threatens. This would be damaging to my
position, to me personally, and to persons or media that might in the future
want to tell my story or act in concert with me.

If the CBC is fully aware of my situation, all will be well. If the powers at
the CBC are not aware of the injunction and my legal situation, I would
ask that this information be made available to them. All the relevant court
documents are webbed on my site. I am available and happy to discuss any
of these matters with CBC legal staff or anyone else.

Thank you for your interest in my story.

The producer of the CBC story advised me that he had heard from the
CBC’s lawyer, who said he has no problems with the CBC proceeding
with the story, and the notion of the CBC being affected by the injunction
was “bunk.”

I believe that Rogers, CHNU, et al. are in the identical position to the
CBC.

Hang in there.

Hi Gerry,

point I’m still awaiting word from our legal department, something I

Subject: Multifaith Action Society v. Armstrong

Dear Jonathon:

What you said about the executive director of the Multifaith Action
Society writing CHNU about me to get the station to pull my interview
has concerned me a great deal, and I feel I must respond fully to the board,
some of whom at least are not Scientologists.

As I mentioned when we talked at the station, Susan Kerr, MAS Vice-
President, and Gale Spick, Treasurer, are high level Scientology
personnel. I see on MAS’s web site that station manager Terry Mahoney is
now off the board, although it still lists OMNI-TV as a partnering
organization.

You didn’t say the ED’s name, but the MAS site says it’s Nancy A.
Chiavario, who I also see was a Vancouver City Councilor in the 1990’s.
She does not appear to be a Scientologist and should be able to understand
and welcome what I would have to say about my relationship with
Scientology.

Now that I know of the letter I would like an opportunity to respond to
what I can only guess MAS’s or Ms. Chiavario’s charges are against me.
Could you please send me a copy of what you received so that I can
respond.

15

It is clear to me that to attack me and reduce my rights and opportunities
as a citizen, the Multifaith Action Society has willfully and foolishly
violated its own primary aims, including promoting dialogue and
understanding, and advocating for marginalized citizens or groups. MAS’s
reaction to the announcement that I was going to be interviewed on The
Standard is a subject I’d hope Rogers and you would use for an
investigation and another show.

I have been willing at all times to talk to any Scientologist to promote
understanding in the Scientology v. Armstrong war. Not one Scientologist
has been willing at any time to talk or dialogue. Scientology head David
Miscavige has never permitted it. The only communications from
Scientology or Scientologists over 26 years are fair game and black PR.
MAS should be doing what it can to get Scientology to change its
obstreperous policy and position so that dialogue and understanding can
occur, rather than assisting Scientology to suppress and destroy my rights.

I am the marginalized citizen in this society and paradigm and
Scientology is the bully cult doing the marginalizing. MAS should be
urging CHNU and Rogers to give me a voice and make my
marginalization and my marginalizers known.

Let me know at your earliest convenience.

Best,

Gerry

28. On December 17, Mr. Roth called and we spoke for a few minutes. I
said I’d called to clarify or verify what had happened. He told me that as part of
Rogers Media’s expansion and acquisition of a number of other TV stations, it
had been compelled, or agreed, to sell CHNU, pending CRTC approval, to Vision
TV. Mr. Roth said that the takeover was set for sometime in February, 2008. He

17

said that consequently Rogers is doing as little as possible and putting no money
into the station. He said that Rogers’ attorneys had made the decision to not air
the interview purely because of money, and that there was no more money to put
into legal matters. He said that the attorneys had found that Scientology had
brought over thirty legal challenges to Canadian media outlets and have won most
of them. Mr. Roth said that he had personally argued that the interview should air,
spoke his mind, and thought he might get kicked out for his dissenting point of
view. He said that two Rogers lawyers were involved, and one was a top lawyer
for Macleans, which he said Rogers owns. He said that when Vision takes over
there could be an opportunity for the interview to air, but that there would be no
changes overnight. I asked if he was going with the station when Vision takes
over, and if Vision was going to maintain The Standard and Randall Mark, and
Mr. Roth said it was unknown. I reminded him how he had really thought it was
like, “Bring it on, we’re Rogers,” and he acknowledged that what I had said about
Scientology; that is, its power, aggression and intention to silence me in
particular, was right. He said he would make me a copy of anything Scientology
had delivered to him about me, and he agreed to scan the documents and e-mail
them to me as pdf documents. I asked him if he could also send me what the
Multifaith Action Society had sent to the station about me so I can respond, and
he said he couldn’t. He did confirm that the MAS Executive Director who had
demanded that the interview not air was Nancy Chiavario. Mr. Roth said that the
Multifaith Action Society has actually apologized to the station, and I said that
they didn’t apologize to me, and that they’re doing with me what they proclaim
they’re opposing. I said I looked forward to meeting with them. He said the
Multifaith Action Society matter is closed as far as the station is concerned, and
he said something about not wanting to go down that rathole. Mr. Roth asked
what had happened with the CBC. I said that the same thing had happened as with
Rogers although not because of an overt threat from Scientology as he had gotten
from Susan Kerr. I said there had been a covert approach from Scientology to the
CBC, and that what I’d been told is that everybody all the way up to the top
started freaking out. I said that now the CBC execs were having the realization
that Mr. Roth had been having, that Scientology is a lot more powerful than he’d
thought and what I’d been saying about the organization had been right. He asked
if the CBC was just cutting part of the interview, and I told him they have killed
the whole show. I told him that had involved going to the University of Alberta
and interviewing Professor Stephen Kent, and coming here to Chilliwack and
spending two days here with their team. I told Mr. Roth that they had interviewed
me one day and did setup shots the second day. I said that during the project they
were also in touch with Scientology. I said that Rogers and the CBC being
shuddered into silence was threatening to my position and created an even more
threatening environment than what was there before. I asked him who has the
courage to put my words out there. Mr. Roth acknowledged how threatening
Scientology is, and asked what was possible for me to do. I said that the kind of
public exposure that he and the CBC offered would be a huge thing. I said that if
everyone in the world said, “Hey, let Gerry Armstrong talk!” Scientology would
be silenced on the issue. I said that society itself, public opinion, could do that,

18

and that, beyond that, it could also go into legal, and it could go into international
relations. I told him I believed that the truth is that Canada ought to be standing
up to the United States on the Scientology v. Gerry Armstrong issue. I asked the
question, “What are they doing sending a Canadian citizen to jail for talking about
a religion?” and I described Scientology as an organization that benefits more
from the mantle of religion than any other organization in the world. Mr. Roth
asked if I was trying to find a lawyer, and I said that I’d been trying for many
years, and that lawyer hadn’t been easy to find. Mr. Roth asked if the CBC filmed
anyone else for my story, and I said Steve Kent. I asked Mr. Roth, if Ted Rogers
drops by, or Mr. Roth has the opportunity, to ask Mr. Rogers to bypass his
lawyers on this one and go to the mat. Mr. Roth protested that he couldn’t do that,
and I said he could because now what’s going to happen is that I have to tell the
story of him and me, of how it ultimately goes down, and pulling the plug on
some 21 minutes which have just been made probably the most famous interview
The Standard ever did, the one that no one can see. I told Mr. Roth that it’s going
to become valuable. I asked him to confirm that Rogers owns the interview and he
did. I told him thanks, that it was nice to know him and be in touch occasionally,
and we said goodbye.

29. On December 18, 2007, I sent the following e-mail letter to the
Multifaith Action Society (“MAS”) to the e-mail address provided on the contact

By e-mail: admin[at]multifaithaction.org

Dear Ms. Chiavario:

On December 12, I sent the following e-mail letter to Jonathan Roth,
Senior Producer of The Standard at Rogers Omni Television:

[December 12 letter, para. 24, supra.]

19

Mr. Roth subsequently has advised me that Rogers has made the decision
to not air my interview with Randall Mark, and to not tape another
interview. Mr. Roth also has advised me that the Multifaith Action Society
had expressed some regret for whatever part MAS played in preventing
the interview from airing on December 7 when it was first scheduled.

I am requesting hereby that you send me a copy of whatever was sent to
Rogers/Omni that concerned me so that I can fully and appropriately
defend myself or otherwise respond. I am also requesting hereby a copy of
whatever you were given or shown about me that brought MAS to take the
extraordinary action of seeking to silence my voice, suppress my rights
and support my marginalization.

I also request that MAS facilitate an opportunity for me to talk to its board
and membership about the situation with Scientology here in B.C. and
around the world to which MAS is so intimately connected. It was within
this situation, Scientology’s long war on the good people who comprise
the religion’s “Suppressive Person” class, that MAS took its extraordinary
action. Such an event and discussion would align with MAS’s primary
aims, and could not help but be educational for all participants, as well as
an exciting and extremely timely topic.

I am aware that it has been claimed that whatever action MAS took to stop
Rogers from airing my interview was done without MAS Board approval,
although apparently done because of pressure or manipulation from
Scientologist board members. Toward the goal of transparency, I will
therefore send this letter to board members whose contact information I
can find. I would also ask, however, that, because of the nature and
urgency of this matter, and my important requests to you herein, you
forward this letter officially to each board member.

Thank you for your anticipated assistance. Please feel free to contact me at
any time for any reason.

Sincerely, and happy holidays,

Dear Jonathan:

As I mentioned, I have to tell the story of Rogers v. Armstrong,
which has for now a sad and icky end. I think that it still could have a
happy and courageous ending, and for that purpose I’d ask you to send this
request as far up the Rogers chain of command as you can.

I believe that it would serve everyone’s interests, including the
Scientologists’ ultimately, if Rogers reconsidered its decision to kill the
interview — and kill the trust and relationship with me, and crush its
personnel’s consciences and affect their relations with the company and
the whole industry.

I think everyone would benefit greatly if Rogers publicly and
transparently took up the issue of its own abject collapse in the face of the
imagined loss of some imagined litigation, or the imagined loss of some
imagined amount of money to litigate the imagined litigation from the cult
that threatens them.

I really felt, and Caroline felt, that you, The Standard, the station
and even Rogers wanted to hear and air the story for the right reasons, and
that you would go to the mat on the issue and even, as you said, welcome
a lawsuit from Scientology. We were misled, however, and those right
reasons, including public interest, disappeared when their reality was
challenged by some beans and their counters. I would argue that Rogers,
knowing now the Scientology v. Gerry Armstrong story and having
initiated contact with me, had and has a duty to its public, and even
shareholders, to stand up to the cult and people who would suppress the
telling of that story. I am asking therefore that Rogers reverse its decision
to kill principle to save a few bucks, and instead allocate a few bucks to
prop up its principle. The company might very well even make a few
bucks in the deal.

Where does Rogers end up on the Scientology bullying circle?

35. On January 2, 2008,I sent a copy of my e-mail letter to the Multifaith Action

e-mail addresses I was able to find; specifically, Rev. Dr. Barry Cooke, Rev. Dr. Steven
Epperson, Richard Chu, Mira Oreck and Dr. Anthony J. Podlecki.

36. On February 28, 2008, I called the telephone number MAS provides on its
web site, and a woman who identified herself as “Nancy,” and who I understood to be
Nancy A. Chiavario, answered the phone. I gave her my name and asked her if she knew
who I am? She said no, so I said I am an ex-Scientologist, and she then said that she
knew who I am. I said that I was very much interested in having a communication with
her organization, with its directors. I told her that she could probably gather that this
matter is very important for me, and she said yes. I said that I thought I deserved a

23

response and a communication, and even a hearing out, and that she probably knew that I
have not received one. She said she didn’t deal with such matters, and I asked who does
then. She told me that she had my letter, and I asked if she has passed it on to the MAS
board. She said she had not, and I asked why that was. She said that it was because the
letter wasn’t addressed to the board. I asked her if she handles the mail and she said she
does. I asked her if I hadn’t requested within the letter that it be forwarded to the board,
and she said she didn’t read it or even open it. I asked if any of the board members had
and she said no. She said she wouldn’t pass the letter on to the board, and I had to send it
to the board for them to get it. I asked her if she could provide me with the full address
for the board of directors, and she said it was the same address to which I had sent my
earlier letter. She said she was finished with this conversation, and abruptly hung up.

Dear Ms. Chiavario:

I will, as you instructed today, contact the MAS Board of Directors and
ask them again what I asked you, them and your group already.

I wanted you personally to know, however, that my memory was right and
I had asked you specifically in my letter of December 18, 2007 to forward
the letter to the MAS Board. “I would also ask, however, that, because of
the nature and urgency of this matter, and my important requests to you
herein, you forward this letter officially to each board member.”

You stated when we spoke this afternoon that you had not forwarded my
letter to the board, would not forward it, had not read it, and wouldn’t read
it. You also stated that, to have any hope of having anyone read my letter,
I had to address it to the MAS Board. Well, I had addressed it to the

24

Board, which you could not but have seen if you’d read the letter. “cc:
Multifaith Action Society board members.”

Your claim that you’d not read the letter is absolutely absurd. You had
time enough to write about me to Rogers Television, or at least sign the
letter that Scientology wrote for you, but you couldn’t and wouldn’t read
the letter, which follows, from the person you’d helped Scientology to fair
game and silence. It should be clear that the disdainful way you and MAS
have treated and handled me evidences an antisocial problem in your
organization that requires public illumination and airing, and I will be
making this matter public as soon as I can.

As you know, I sent my December 18, 2007 letter to your organization
both by e-mail and Canada Post. The e-mail address that apparently gets
mail to you is admin[at]multifaithaction.org. On the MAS “Contact Us”
page, the “Click to email” button opens up my e-mail client with to
address “admin[at]multifaithaction.org.”

page, the “Click to email” button opens up my e-mail client with the same

I will nevertheless, readdress this letter to the MAS Board, and I will
expect that you will forward it forthwith.

Dear MAS Board:

Your Executive Director’s e-mail message below is simply disingenuous
and unbelievable.

When I spoke with Ms. Chiavario on February 28, she did NOT tell me
that my December 18, 2007 letter, which I sent by Canada Post and
addressed to her, had been discarded unopened by her. She in fact said on
February 28 that she had my letter right there, but would not open it and
would not forward it to the MAS Board of Directors as I requested. She
very well may have discarded the letter now, but she did NOT say she
already had discarded it; whereas she DID say that, as of February 28, she
still possessed the letter.

In any event, your Executive Director is willfully putting Multifaith
Action Society at risk, and rendering each MAS Board member ignorant,
by discarding any mail, unopened or not, that your society receives;
especially correspondence concerning a very serious matter that so affects
your society’s reputation and involves your society’s knowing
mistreatment of a Scientology victim on that organization’s behalf.

It is not credible that Ms. Chiavario had not previously received my e-mail
letter of December 18, 2007. My December 18 e-mail (below) went to the
same e-mail address as my letters of February 28, 2008. Ms. Chiavario
indicates that she is able to forward my e-mails received at that address to
the MAS Board. If she had not seen my e-mail of December 18, how
would she know what my letter sent by Canada Post contained in order to
discard it without opening its envelope? OT abilities? Even if she is
merely driven by some blind hatred for me, or blanket contempt for
Scientology’s victims, she should not be in a position where she can stop

28

important communications from getting to the MAS Board, or where she
can originate attacks on people that involve your society.

I ask again that the MAS Board contact me and make arrangements with
me to provide an opportunity for me to address the Board and any
interested MAS members, in order to clear the air, clear my name, and
hopefully put an end to your society’s abetment of Scientology in its
efforts to silence and Fair Game its victims.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Armstrong,
I have not previously received any emails from you.
I told you that the Canada Post letter addressed to me was discarded
unopened by me.
I have forwarded your emails dated February 28, 2008 to the MAS Board.
This will be their first knowledge of any previous correspondence from
you.
