Canadian Security magazine held a guarding roundtable on April 26, inviting representatives from some of the leading companies in the security business to discuss and debate some of the major issues of the day. The major impetus for the discussion was recent changes to Ontario legislation (Bill 148), as well as similar legislation in other provinces, that are having a major effect on employment conditions, chief among them an increase in minimum wage (rising to $14 an hour in Ontario on Jan. 1 this year and $15 an hour next year). Other factors that prompted this discussion include technology innovations such as drones and robots, and how they might change the landscape of the security industry. Unexpected was the topic of vehicular attacks. Days earlier, the van attack occurred in Toronto — the panel felt it was appropriate to introduce this as a discussion topic and talk about the implications for the security industry.
