Well, he's Barbara's Dad! Pretended not to know Babs was Batgirl and now does the same since she's became Oracle though it's more likely he really doesn't know this time. Pre-Crisis stories include some interaction with Black Canary, and so, if these are considered canon, they have worked together on occasion. The JLA was in Gotham during its early days, so it's possible they did meet then; Met, danced with, kissed, and helped squelch a crime-in-progress with Black Canary, Sr and the JSA back during World War II though this is probably an Elseworlds moment since, historically and in most post-Crisis and retcon related stories, Canary Sr. didn't start her career nor join the JSA until after the War.
