Potrang vs. Shambhala Canada- time for class action suit? 

in the forum Sangha Talk (Global Discussion Forum):

A quick visit to the Nova Scotia Registry of Joint Stock Companies for info on THE SAKYONG POTRANG CANADA and "Shambhala Canada Society will tell you who has decision power and a visit to the Registry office located in Access Nova Scotia Offices throughout NS (and you probably can access this info in any Maritime province Access office) & $25 will buy you the ByLaws.Interesting to note that the POTRANG is the non-profit church and VAJRADHATU BUDDHIST CHURCH became the Shambhala Canada Society in 2014.  And that the POTRANG is for the exclusive support of Mr Mukpo, his family and Kalapa Court.(from a 2015 paper on governance structure by Josh Silberstein.)  Many of the same people serve in both organizations.After several requests for the Bylaws to the various Shambhala Boards, I have not received an answer or the bylaws. Without knowledge of these, i.e. how real change can actually occur according to the By Laws of each group, no amount of requesting change in the organizational structure or financial allocation, etc. will make a difference.Based on the way things have been going, financial allocations appear to be less than beneficial to the overall health of Shambhala & its assets & I'm wondering fiduciary responsibility to whom or what??I'm not a lawyer, but I suggest that these people have had, and still have, the ultimate decision making power for how our donations have been or will be spent including property sales or refinancing: such as $450,00 mortgage taken in 7/2016 on Dorje Denma Ling & $1,430,000 mortgage taken in 2017 on Halifax Kalapa Court & they have threatened to do the same for the Halifax Shambhala Center. These are only the 3 of the properties for which the Shambhala Canada Society is the officially registered owner and the people below made these decisions: (scroll down for Shambhala C S info)Business/Organization Name: THE SAKYONG POTRANG CANADARegistry ID: 3269761Type: Extra-Provincial CorporationNature of Business: CHURCH - N0N PROFITStatus: ActiveJurisdiction: CanadaRegistered Office: 601 - 5121 SACKVILLE STREETHALIFAX NS Canada B3J 1K1Mailing Address: 601 - 5121 SACKVILLE STREETHALIFAX NS Canada B3J 1K1Previous Name: THE SAKYONG LADRANG CANADAPEOPLEName Position Civic Address Mailing AddressJEFF ROSEN Director 1760 BLOOMINGDALE TERRACEHALIFAX NS B3H 4E5JOSHUA SILBERSTEIN Director 1150 HAWTORN AVE.BOULDER CO 80301TSEYANG P.
