Toronto-area MP Derek Lee appears in a recruiting video used by the Church of Scientology to attract new members in the United States.

Some critics have denounced Scientology as a brainwashing cult that harasses its opponents and exploits the vulnerable for financial gain. But Mr. Lee says he supports some of the group's programs and is particularly impressed by its approach to rehabilitating drug addicts.

"I'm way past the point of viewing them as just a cult," said Mr. Lee, who is Roman Catholic and not a member of the Church of Scientology. "My judgment is there are just too many good people in that faith doing too many good things."
