Freedom Magazine Editor Awarded

A good friend of mine recently received an award for his journalism and the riveting story exposing terrible attrocities inflicted on Canadian children.

Here is part of the story:

"Mr. Thomas G. Whittle, senior editor of Freedom Magazine is presented with the DeRose-Hinkhouse Memorial Award of Excellence of the Religion Communicators Council for the story North America’s Crime of the Century, which can be read online at the Freedom Magazine web site.

"DALLAS, TX — Freedom, the investigative journal of the Church of Scientology International, received the Award of Excellence from the Religion Communicators Council (RCC) for the magazine’s in-depth online feature report, “North America’s Crime of the Century.”

"The awards ceremony was a highlight of the RCC’s annual convention, which concluded last weekend in Dallas-Fort Worth. The RCC, an international interfaith association of religion communications and public relations professionals, recognized Freedom’s online report as “an important and moving investigative piece reporting on the inhumane treatment of orphans in Quebec.”

"The award-winning article, co-authored by Freedom Senior Editor Thomas G. Whittle and investigative writer Christine Hahn, exposed abuses on a massive scale against innocent children during the mid-20th century reign of Quebec Premier Maurice Duplessis. The fraudulent labeling of the orphans as “mentally ill” or “retarded” opened the door to a battery of psychiatric brutalities, including lobotomies, electro-shock and the massive administration of brain-damaging drugs. The article reveals that up 50,000 innocent children may have died or disappeared in Quebec’s psychiatric institutions as a result of the false labeling and subsequent abuses."
