Phil and Willie check up on a Scientology eyesore, and a prisoner of The Hole resurfaces - 2019-12-20
Our thanks this holiday season to Phil Jones for sending us this dispatch from the frozen north…
Willie and I were in Toronto for the weekend so we decided to check on the Scientology Toronto building at 696 Yonge Street to see how (or if) their renovations were coming along. I met up with the building caretaker, Blair Sisson, at the property. Blair is an old time Scientologist whom I've known for more than 35-40 years. Nice guy but still 100 percent committed to Scientology. He had no idea that Willie and I were out of Scientology. I did tell him we were out during our conversation at which time he seemed to become anxious and left.
The building shows no signs of any improvements and actually looks worse than the last time I saw it. I asked Blair if he'd give us a tour of the inside but he said no. I asked him several times whether the renovations had started on the inside but each time he didn't answer so I'm pretty sure they haven't done anything inside either.
