Should I check permissions on Page_Load() as I have done in the code snippet below?  Should I use Page_Init()? Both functions? Or some other place?

I want to redirect to a failure page when the user does not have permission.

protected void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            table = DynamicDataRouteHandler.GetRequestMetaTable(Context);
            FormView1.SetMetaTable(table);
            DetailsDataSource.EntityTypeFilter = table.EntityType.Name;
        }

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (!RDDBAdminDataStore.User.IsAdministrator)
            {
                Response.Redirect("AccessDenied.aspx");
            }
            Title = table.DisplayName;
            DetailsDataSource.Include = table.ForeignKeyColumnsNames;
        }

Definitely not in both.  


Page_Load is fine . . . see the differences here.
