If you live in Saskatoon, Canada, the name Denis Hall might be familiar because he’s running for the Catholic School Board. But the name might also be familiar if you’ve ever checked the sex offender registry list because Mr. Hall is a pedophile who was tried and convicted of indecent assault and having sex with females aged 14 to 16.
As if conquering the stigma of being a creepy man trying to have sex with young girls isn’t hard enough for Hall, he will have a tough time winning the election considering that he’s received a lifetime ban from all Saskatoon Catholic schools. But for every roadblock there’s an opportunity, right? We’ll see how he fares in Tuesday’s all-candidates’ debate at E.D. Feehan High School, from which he’s not allowed in the front door. Our sources say that he might try to take part in the debate by looking through the window and answering questions from there.
Obviously, this man has zero business being out of jail, let alone running for the board of a Catholic school, but can we just talk about this ridiculous quote from Reverand Kevin McGee? “I have reasons for serious concern that Denis is not suited for this position.” Oh really? People in Canada are too nice. Call him a pervert sicko pedophile, shame him, and be done with it.
[Editor’s Note: I am now seriously considering shaving my beard after seeing this creep with facial hair.]
Who is Denis Hall?
Denis Hall is a man who is a convicted sex offender and now running for a position on the Saskatoon Catholic School Board.
In 1981, Hall was sentenced to 18 months in prison. He’d pleaded guilty to four of the eight charges against him for indecent assault and having sex with females aged 14 to 16, according to a 2003 Saskatoon StarPhoenix report. The crimes occurred in the mid-to-late-1970s in Regina, Swift Current and Melfort.
He also made an out-of-court payment to one of the victims to settle a lawsuit, stated the report. In 1994, Hall received a pardon because he had not been convicted of any further offenses to that point.
This isn’t the first time that Hall has run for election in the Saskatoon Catholic School Board, though. He also tried the same stunt in 2003.
