The opposition NDP at Queen’s Park is demanding an investigation into a Pan Am security contract that went to the U.S. based company, Contemporary Security Canada. PanAm Games Critic, Paul Miller, says it’s troubling that the province is spending more money on a company that was charged and fined $45,000 four years ago for not having the proper licenses to provide security for the G8/G20. Miller has sent a letter to the Auditor General asking that the decision making process be looked into to make sure tax payers are getting value for their money. The 81-million dollar bid is 14-million higher than a runner-up Ontario company. The criticism comes as the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Games is already facing questions for ballooning security costs, firings of senior officials, including former CEO Ian Troop and spending controversies.
