I read an article a while back in the Toronto Star that struck home. It was called, “$80 and I’m a Security Guard.” The author tells the story of how he dropped by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services with a passport photo, completed a security guard application and gave the clerk $80. The clerk asked him if he’d also like a private investigator’s license. What did that take? Another $80. Two weeks later, his security guard and private investigator’s license materialized in his mailbox. As he put it, “I’m now fully licensed for two jobs I have no idea how to perform.”

Sound familiar?
