Apparently, Stephen and his Harpertards do not consider fallen Canadian soldiers to be worthy of parliamentary commemoration. The message seems to be, "Yeah, people are dropping like flies in Afghanistan, but, really...who gives a damn? Let's focus on the good news, people".
Fortunately for the CPC, they have a report to back up their disgraceful ingratitude. That's right: Harper is "standing up for Canada" by parroting the findings of a CPC-commissioned panel larded with faceless technocrats (a panel that also recommended that the flag no longer be lowered in annual commemoration of fallen police officers).
Leadership by report; leadership by poll; leadership by hack-ridden panel, brought to you by "Canada's New Government". Pathetic.
