Harper Government stalling Rememberance Day as legal holiday

The Harper Government won't support Remembrance day as a legal holiday:

“It certainly seems like they've hit the brakes hard on this bill,” said Harris, who accused Conservatives of tying it up by asking the veterans affairs committee to study the matter after it had already been reviewed.
“They seem to be doing everything they can to stop it.”

What do they need to study? A one clause bill.  To take longer than needed on a simple matter wastes government resources.

So to claim they support veterans while not jumping all over a simple bill to recognize Remembrance Day is nonsense.
