Back in '93, when All About Receiving Cash had just changed it's name from Kids of the Canadian West, Kon politicians had already begun whoring themselves out to the sect.  Diane Mirosh commenced to begging for money for the quack faith-based behaviour modification program within weeks of the first rap rituals being held on Forge Road.  At that time even the Kons themselves had enough sense to refuse to hand money to these scoundrels:

"We do not fund community
residential programs out of the Health Care Insurance Fund but
certainly will fund physician-based, acute care programs whether
they are within Alberta or outside of Alberta."
March 24, 1992 Alberta Hansard 

Fast forward to 2015, and we get this band of the damned:
"The Alberta Mental Health Committee
Dr. David Swann, Liberal leader and MLA for Calgary-Mountain View, Co-Chair
Danielle Larivee, Minister of Municipal Affairs and MLA for Lesser Slave Lake, Co-Chair1
Tyler White, CEO of Siksika Health Services, Committee Member
Heather Sweet, MLA for Edmonton Manning, Committee Member"

...who sell us this massive load of bullshit:
"Addiction: An inability to consistently abstain; impairment in behavioral control; craving, diminished recognition of significant
problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships; and a dysfunctional emotional response."

...which comes from these dipshits:

...who get the idea from this creepy lot of scoundrels:
https://www.asam.org/asam-home-page

...which leads to this sort of emotional clap-trap:
"I have reviewed the material you sent and have certainly concerns about the policies and procedures at AARC which I am now pursuing. I will be discussing it with various people in the addictions/mental health field so I have not ignored this new information.
I also have several people in my immediate circle who believe their child's life was hanging by a thread and was saved. This is not a 'black and white' issue."
Dr. David Swann

...all the while, we knew this over twenty-five years ago:
"Addiction does not meet the criteria specified for a core disease entity, namely the presence of a primary measurable deviation from physiologic or anatomical norm.2 Addiction is self-acquired and is not transmissible, contagious, autoimmune, hereditary, degenerative or traumatic. Treatment consists of little more than stopping a given behaviour."
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3314045/

...and the Alberta Government and it's "advisors" are all set to bundle us all onto this crazy train:
"Above all, the unscientific approaches private clinics use to peg their success rates make us believe that these places sell false hope."

This document spells out very clearly the unfortunate relationship between the University of Calgary, the Palix Foundation, the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative, Hazelden, the LDS and All About Receiving Cash.

Nice to see notorious Hazelden fraud Ken Winters is keeping up his friendship with the Calgary thought reform community.  Also touching is the fact that AARC continues to be the focus of the academic work of AARC sect members.  Unique indeed!

Nine years after suing Christine Lunn for revealing the abusive and bizarre experiences suffered at the hands of the All About Receiving Cash sect's thought reform program, the criminal sect continues to put on a Cirque de Soleil-calibre show of cronyism in action.

Yet another Case Management judge has been appointed, the esteemed Nancy Dilts.  This lady is the former counsel for former AARC board member Dennis Feuchuk's Parallel Energy Trust.  Feuchuk, in addition to being an AARC sect member/parent, also employed AARC frenzy-killer Andy Evans' mother.  Evans' father was AARC's accountant, and has a full understanding of AARC's relationship to it's super-cool donors.

Yet again, CBC offers a platform to sell All About Receiving Cash.  This article offers up yet another dead graduate whose family loves All About Receiving Cash and uses his obit to beg for money for the sect, which, from what I understand, has millions of dollars in assets stowed away. 

This however, is by far the kookiest statement I have ever heard come out of any 12-stepper or AARColyte:

"Like other parents in the documentary, they are also calling for decriminalization of illicit drugs based on an understanding that addiction is a chronic relapsing disease that makes people more vulnerable to overdose after they've been in treatment."

So basically, sending your kid to AARC is more likely to result in death, but it's vital that more resources go to treatment.  I couldn't make this shit up if I tried.

High five, CBC.

Subsequent to the revelations about the All About Receiving Cash behaviour modification program made on the CBC Fifth Estate episode "Powerless", lawyer Clint Docken undertook to represent victims of the unlicensed quack pseudo-treatment.  Many former subjects were ready to come forward and disclose the bizarre rituals and punishments that consistute the program, but suddenly Docken dropped the case like a hot potato.  How did All About Receiving Cash confirm that such an action was being undertaken, as their cover-up plan clearly indicates:
"We believe the following people are in the process of pursuing a potential law suit against AARC and have requested a copy of their AARC client file – Christine Lunn, Rachael O’Neill, Dalyce Urban, Jill Delf, Tara Thompson, Lisa Byram, Bodana Dye, Sarah Miller Dr. Vause spoke with AARC’s insurer, Jay Sinclair of BFL and they insure AARC is in good standing and prepared – We have received confirmation that a class action law suit is in process with lawyer Clint Docken – John Lojek has been instructed to do preliminary research into a potential class action suit.
Peggy to take over this with John."

A little over a month later, this is what one of the AARC victims reported:
"I spoke to Kim Johnson from Docken today. She said that a class action suit would not be possible because 'too many people feel the program helped them.'"

Now just how did Docken and Co. come to that particular calculation?  Oddly, Docken's ears apparently pricked up once Ann McCaig's name was mentioned.  More AARC Saskatchewan cronyism?

Why were AARC Empress Ann McCaig and the Wiz meeting with former MLA Jim Dinning as part of the AARC cover-up strategy after the airing of the Fifth Estate "Powerless" episode in 2009?  How exactly was Dinning to "help"?

Dinning was the Alberta Government rep sent to New Jersey in '89, along with Rotary Club industrial psychologist RK Dougan, to assess Miller Newton's "Kids".  D & D both liked the behaviour modification program so much that the Alberta Government gave $600k to set up "Kids of the Canadian West", which became All About Receiving Cash. 
https://web.archive.org/web/20061104194557/http://www.kidsofbergencounty.com/C02-03-90.htm

No one from the Alberta Government has ever been held accountable for the money sent to Miller Newton's quack thought reform program, nor for the torture of the Albertans sent to Kids.  Odd that the Alberta Government sent Dinning, who was the Education Minister at the time, rather than a qualified expert on adolescent mental health.
"In short, Dinning achieved his corporate aims, so much
so that he acquired a nickname, “Diamond Dinning,” while
amassing a score of credits with Alberta’s elite, which he was
able to call upon later during the Conservative leadership race."

Here's a clilp of the Wiz explaining as best he can how convicted sex murderer Andrew Evans ended up back at All About Receiving Cash.  Either Evans was a thirty-two-year-old client in an adolescent program, or he was a convicted sex murderer counselling vulnerable adolescents.  Either scenario is as absurd as the other.
With the help of compliant media in BC, Nicole Parisien was painted as a sex worker who was killed by Evans in a delirous rage brought on by his use of ecstasy, hash and alchohol.  Like every other story related to AARC, it is absurd and seems to be a pack of lies.  The family of Nicole Parisien is adamant that she was not a sex worker, and there is scant evidence to support Evans' tale.  What is indisputable is the fact that Evans called Dean Vause after the murder, and Vause instructed Evans to return to Calgary.  And neither man called an ambulance for Nicole Parisien.  Roy Evans, Andrew's father, was the accountant for All About Recieving Cash, and could likely explain the million dollars per year in miscellaneous expenses and the curious relationship of All About Receiving Cash to super awesome guy Allan Markin.

In light of the failed effort by All About Receiving Cash to ammend their lawsuits against CBC et al, suits that began in 2009, it seems fairly evident that the sect is engaged in a kamikaze stalling effort.  The 2018 ammendment included this:

"In addition to the Sensationalism, the Powerless Production contained a number
of other defamatory statements, allegations, innuendos and criticisms of AARC,
including, without limitation, the following:...
(d) AARC is connected to the Kids program run by Miller Newton in Bergen County,
New Jersey, USA (the “KIDS Program”), which was eventually shut-down due
to, inter alia, the abuses that occurred in that program;"

There is ample evidence that AARC is Kids of the Canadian West reorganized and operating under an alias.

"MR. NELSON: Mr. Speaker, AADAC has been involved with
assistance in developing the program of the Alberta Adolescent
Recovery Centre since its inception originally as Kids of the
Canadian West."
Alberta Hansard, March 24, 1992

This old gem outlines the role of the disgraceful Dr. Martin Atkinson, active shill for the original Kids abomination in New Jersey:

https://web.archive.org/web/20050301014454/http://kidsofbergencounty.com:80/c02-04-90.htm

Atkinson remained tied to the sect from the late eighties until at least 2009, when he acted on behalf of the sect in the cover-up after the Fifth Estate program aired.

"Dr. David Swann – Previous AARC Board member Dr. Martin Atkinson will be approaching Dr. Swann to provide information on AARC-Dr Vause"

The most telling quote from these old Kids articles comes from fellow Calgary doctor Stuart Neil:

"We're trying to have people come and have a look at the program and talk to us and understand the rationale behind it rather than sneak it in and hope nobody notices".

Clearly Doctors Neil and Atkinson were not dissuaded from the sneaking part when their rationale proved to be a great steaming pile.

I recently came across this little gem, which might explain why Minister Larivee has been unwilling to make a single peep regarding All About Receiving Cash.  AARC's rubber stamp Peter Choda was on this panel with Larivee and AARC-believer David Swann.  Interesting to see Choda accused of having a non-traditional (wat dat is?) doctorate from the States.  Union buddies with the Wiz, Luciano and Miller Newton?
https://www.alberta.ca/child-intervention-panel.aspx

"Dr" Choate is not a psychologist - he is not registered with any professional body as such in any jurisdiction; nor could he be given that he received his so called "PhD" from a non accredited US "educational" institution (ie: diploma mill). He is a masters level sociologist. His approach, interpretations and assessments can be flawed and dangerous. If one should challenge him regarding his credentials he becomes extremely defensive. Caveat emptor."

All About Receivng Cash sect members remain very hurt by the public shaming they received simply because their faith-based behaviour modification program was exposed for the dangerous and criminal sham that it is by the CBC.  Certainly any reasonable person would see AARC's point, that a few rapes here and there, turning a sixteen-year-old female Newcomer over to an eighteen-year-old male Oldcomer to serve as a spank-muse, and the odd beating now and again are not that exceptional, and the CBC revelations of such are certainly sensational.

Sadly, the judge in this case did not let AARC change their SLAPP suit to defend these allegations, although since every one of them is true, the judge seems to have saved AARC from a litigation Little Big Horn:

"(a)               The AARC model, methodology, practices, and techniques are negative, brutal, overly harsh, and AARC should not be permitted to operate;
(b)               AARC takes clients who are not addicted;
(c)               AARC tolerates abuse against its clients both in the program and outside of it;
(d)               AARC is connected to the Kids program run by Miller Newton in Bergen County, New Jersey, USA (the “KIDS Program”), which was eventually shut-down due to, inter alia, the abuses that occurred in that program;
(e)               AARC’s staff is all untrained and uneducated;
(f)                 The AARC model and program were created by uneducated and untrained peer staff at AARC;
(g)               AARC operates without regulation or government oversight;
(h)               AARC advertises a false or misleading success rate for its program;
(i)                  AARC has a financial incentive to cover up abuse and continue its operations; and
(j)                 AARC has something to hide and consequently, refused access to the CBC and its journalists in the preparation of the Powerless Production"
https://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abqb/doc/2018/2018abqb324/2018abqb324.html

On points:
a) de gustibus non est disputandum
b) The Wiz himself acknowledged that Rachel O'Neill was not addicted when confronted by CBC, at which he point he began sputtering about "psychosis", as if his dodgeball skills afforded him the legal right to treat psychosis.  He openly admitted that he has no clue who is addicted when confronted on the phone by former client SM.  Great success.
c) The entire "treatment" process is abusive, and AARC used to proudly promote that in the media at every opportunity
d) There is literally no question whatsoever that AARC was set up as a branch of Kids and simply changed it's name.  Sect leader Dean vause came from Kids, Kids of the Canadian West chair Dr. Martin Atkinson joined the AARC board after the thought reform program was rebranded, Janne Holmgren, Brian Neil, Lisa Luciano, Peter Sorckoff and Simi Bates were all hired as counsellors at AARC solely due to their having been Kids clients.  As well, the organization PRIDE went from having people sent to Kids to having them sent to AARC.  Nobody from PRIDE ever had to be accountable for their crimes related to the torture of Canadians at the US Kids facilities.  Even the Provincial Government openly acknowledged AARC as a development of Kid.
e) Word games.  Inadequately educated and unqualified to provide the alleged intensive interventions purported to constitute AARC's behaviour modification program
f) Nobody claims that.  Dean Vause and the original peer staff were all very clearly trained at Kids, and Vause stole the model from kids
g) AARC is not regulated by any government body.  There is a litany of assertions by various officials from AHS, Alberta Health, Alberta Justice, etc. that they have no authority over AARC.
h) AARC and the Wiz have claimed many different rates of success.  There is no scientific evidence to support any of them, save perhaps the growing number of dead graduates.
i) For people with nothing to hide, they sure seem keen to get control of documents like the outline of their cover-up strategy that shows collusion with Calgary Police, various former Konservative Ministers, and the current NDP Manchurian Candidate Premier
j) see above

All About Receiving Cash continues to maintain the lie that they are not subject to any regulation as their faith-based behaviour modification program is non-residential.  This is, like so much of the AARC story, simply untrue. 
At the time that AARC graduate Amy O'Flynn was being sentenced after running down and killing Ricky Vienneau while intoxicated, and then attempting to stage a vehicle theft in order to evade prosecution, AARC sect leader Dean Vause told the Court that:

"Level one of the program the clients are removed from their homes and our [sic] under our supervision twenty-four hours a day"

Now the Wiz has never been one to have his actions limited by fear of criticial analysis of the nonsense that eminates from him.  I often wonder if he has some type of unique gland from which lying is secreted, a sort of "decepticle".  So he has no problem telling a judge that somehow his non-residential program provides 'twenty-four hour" supervision.  AARC is of course residential, with the Recovery Homes serving as a fundamental aspect of the program to eliminate and then create anew the subject's identity and position in a social matrix.

Premier Notley, in her enthusiastic abandonment of her duty to investigate AARC, has latched onto the fundamental AARC lie in order to avoid undertaking an investigation of the sect.

According to Vause, AARC subjects are being provided treatment on Sundays when they are not in the sect's facilities.

"Amy was at the center during the day.  We provided a recovery home at night.  Amy was under 24 hour supervision."

"Amy was in a recovery home every night.  Although she had time away from the center to work or go to school, she was in treatment 7 days a week."

This is a curious notion given Vause's adamant position that the only thing he does at AARC is arrange AA meetings.  Which he does, according to the Calgary Herald, for $85k per year per exorcism, an increase of $40k per annum from the first time I looked at the sect in 2007.  When cornered, the Wiz is resolute in defence of his assertion that he does not provide treatment of any kind.

"1. My work is restricted to the application of the “Alcoholics Anonymous 12 Step Program” relating to
alcoholic or addicts under a contract for services with AARC being a non-profit corporation of Alberta
which program does not fall within the definition of a “health service” under the Act.
2. The implementation of the “Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step Program” does not require the services of
a professional psychologist or other health professional, therefore section 46 of the Act which
references section 28(2) does not apply."


The statement to the Court in the O'Flynn case also includes the Great Dodgeball Coach claiming to be a clinician:
"In closing, I had the opportunity to spend a full day clinically addressing the accident and the shame Amy felt."

https://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abpc/doc/2005/2005abpc129/2005abpc129.html?resultIndex=2

Dean-o's consistent lying brings to mind the late great Joe Dimaggio: "'why did you play so hard?'
'Because there might have been somebody in the stands today who'd never seen my play before, and might never see me again'
