Tony Clement is wielding a bureaucratic sword to defend federal civil servants from any "Grinch" trying to take away Christmas or Hanukkah decorations from their workspaces.

"We had a state of confusion a year or two ago where there was some question as to whether Christmas decorations were allowed in a building that was a federal government building," the Treasury Board president said. "So, we want to make sure that people realize there's no prohibition for that when it comes to public service employees."
