Secret Footage of "Faith Healer" Peter Popoff in Toronto May 2011

Members of Think Again! TV and the Centre for Inquiry, via a secret source, obtained invitation-only tickets to a live faith healing/supernatural debt relief event featuring Peter Popoff at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on May 26, 2011.

Footage shows Popoff engaging in "healings", hosting testimonials and requesting large sums of money from the audience. Also features a sick man being turned away, and the description of an altercation in which - rather ironically - the organist for this "faith healer" wished upon us death by cancer.

Background:

Peter Popoff was a famous 1980s faith healer proven a fraud by skeptic James Randi on the tonight show with Johnny Carson. Randi and his assistants used a radio scanner to intercept transmissions from Popoff's wife Elizabeth giving the prophet information about members of the audience, including their address and ailments. After being exposed, his popularity declined sharply, and Popoff declared bankruptcy in 1987.

20 years later, Popoff returned, ironically now combining supernatural debt relief, of all things, with his old faith healing tricks. He has become a profitable prophet once again.
