Opposition leaders are attacking Conservative Leader Stephen Harper over a report the processing of some Syrian refugees was halted this spring so the Prime Minister's Office could vet their applications. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau is calling it further evidence of Harper's lack of transparency. NDP Leader Tom Mulcair says Harper is using fake security concerns to stop refugees from coming to Canada. (The Globe and Mail reports the PMO said all applicants referred by the United Nations would require Harper's approval to ensure that security was not compromised.)
