Catholic officials in Saskatoon say they're concerned about a candidate seeking election as a school trustee who has past convictions for sex offences. Father Kevin McGee, acting administrator of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon, says Denis Robert Hall's convictions raise questions about his suitability as a candidate for school trustee. McGee says trustees need to work together and work with vulnerable people in the diocese. (Hall was convicted in 1981 of two charges of having sexual intercourse with girls aged 14 to 16 and two charges of indecent assault against girls who were members of a basketball team he coached in the Regina Church Basketball Association. Hall received a pardon in 1994.)
