Canada: Worker's security clearance stripped after organized-crime scare at Vancouver airport.

Another Vancouver airport employee has been stripped of their security clearance — and lost their job — over an organized crime scare, this time after an Air Canada staffer was found in the United States carrying almost 12 kilograms of marijuana and more than $353,000 in bulk currency near the Canadian border.

David Sargeant, 50, was an airline ground employee for almost 30 years, working as a station attendant at Vancouver International Airport, mainly doing baggage handling, towing aircraft and providing service for passengers with disabilities.

His job requires him to maintain a Transportation Security Clearance allowing access to restricted areas of the airport, which he was granted every five years without problems.
