Shining armour

Earlier, we reported Paladin Security Group Ltd. is patrolling the provincial Liberal biennial convention. Paladin bills itself as "Western Canada's largest full-service security company." But it made the headlines in June for another reason: The Vancouver Sun's Glenn Bohn reported the firm would be challenging 20 violation tickets for "allegedly employing people who do not have valid security employee licences." And, in 2003, the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority awarded Paladin a controversial five-year $23 million contract when it privatized security services at nine Lower Mainland hospitals - making the company the union movement's favourite rent-a-cop.

Paladin? Wasn't that the name for Have Gun Will Travel? Does the name Leo Knight fit in here as well?
