Lev Tahor is not the first group nor sadly will it be the last where children will suffer at the hands of an authoritarian leadership and who will see their fundamental human rights ignored or denied.

WireService.ca Press Release (10/14/2015) Montreal, QC - On July 9th, the Quebec Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse made public their report on how the system handled child protection issues regarding Lev Tahor, the ultra-Orthodox Jewish group. The report which can be found here: (http://www.cdpdj.qc.ca/Publications/Lev_Tahor_rapport.pdf) noted several failures in how the system handled the case. In the report's recommendations it mentioned Info-Cult and that we should be involved in training those who would be involved in cultic situations, and that our organization receive the resources needed to carry out its mandate (Recommendation 2, p. 29) Following the publication of the Commission's report, Info-Cult distributed the following press release. Report on Lev Tahor The recommendations in the report on how youth protection handled the case against Lev Tahor indicate government awareness of the necessity and urgency to act in this area. Info-Cult is the only organization of its kind in Quebec that provides information, analysis and assistance concerning high control and extremist groups and related subjects.

In its 35 years of operation it, has dealt with similar problems where the well-being of children were involved. Carolle Tremblay, Info-Cult's president and a lawyer in family law, has in her legal career dealt with families with children in high-control groups including Lev Tahor. She had this to say, "Lev Tahor is not the first group nor sadly will it be the last where children will suffer at the hands of an authoritarian leadership and who will see their fundamental human rights ignored or denied. It is time now to implement the recommendations in this report and to do it in a comprehensive manner that includes all relevant expertise from those in diverse fields". Mike Kropveld, the founder and executive director of Info-Cult and court recognized expert, acknowledges that "cultic phenomena is ever-changing and it is not realistic nor reasonable to assume that those in youth protection and other related agencies will be at the forefront of knowledge in that area.

Youth protection workers are experts in the area of child abuse and how to intervene when situations of that nature occur". The cult phenomenon is where Info-Cult has developed a unique expertise and has proven its vital role as a resource to all sectors of our society. Info-Cult has garnered a worldwide reputation and possesses the most recent knowledge in this field. Info-Cult is committed to take an active role in working collaboratively to prevent future human tragedies
