A man convicted of brutally violent sexual attacks against children has been released into Brantford. James Cooper, originally a Hamilton resident, has been described as “Canada’s worst pedophile,” and is now out on statutory release living in a Brantford halfway house. The news has sparked outrage from local parents and residents who want to know why they weren’t told. The address hasn’t been revealed, with the Salvation Army and other organizations staying quiet. Police are watching Cooper closely to make sure the 76-year-old doesn’t breach his probation.
