They prey, you pay

Here's something I just learned in the last few days. If you go to the Calgary Police Service because your employer requires you to complete a security check, you may have to pay for that security check out of your own pocket. Fair enough.

Here's where it gets bizarre. If you happen to have the same gender and birth date as a registered sex offender - you will be flagged and have to submit to fingerprinting to make sure you are not that sex offender - name changed. That will cost you an additional fee. You pay. For someone else's deed. Even though you're not the offender.
