Memo to Service Canada: The Grinch will not Steal Christmas
 
Today, Service Canada employees in Quebec received a "directive" from a regional manager suggesting they should not decorate their offices for Christmas.
 
This "directive" was unauthorized and does not reflect our Government's views - or Canadians' values.
 
Minister Finley has asked Service Canada to send a new "directive" to employees today to clarify that they can celebrate Christmas or the holidays as they please. This includes decorations in Service Canada offices in Quebec and across Canada.
 
After all, there happens to be a thirty foot Christmas tree in the lobby of Human Resources Canada's headquarters in Gatineau.

Backstory here -- and to all, a good night.
