Allan M Savage
Diocesan priest ordained 1978.  Originally ordained for Diocese of Timmins, Ontario – later changed his incardination to Diocese of Thunder Bay, Ontario.  At some point was employed by Lakehead psychiatric hospital and also provided chaplain services to adjacent Northwestern Regional Centre.   March 1991 charged with sexually assaulting two male residents age 19 and 23.  ACQUITTED.  

 Father Savage now serves as Pastor at St. Patrick’s, the one and only English-speaking parish in the Archdiocese of Quebec, Quebec.  I am told that arrangements were made to ‘loan’ Savage to the Quebec Archdiocese just prior to Cardinal Marc Ouellet’s move to Rome in 2010.

A Roman Catholic priest was cleared Monday of charges he sexually abused two men at a psychiatric hospital where he worked.

Rev. Allan Savage, 44, was acquitted by a judge of one count of sexual assault after the Crown offered no evidence in the provincial division of Ontario Court.

Judge Rod Clarke also discharged Savage on the second count after deciding a preliminary hearing failed to present enough evidence to proceed to trial.

Savage pleaded not guilty last April to the charges stemming from complaints by two mentally retarded men — aged 19 and 23 — at Lakehead Psychiatric Hospital.
