Vacation disappeared from my pay slip, and I want it back

More than a week's vacation has disappeared from my pay statement, yet I've taken no vacation. HR claim a clerical error, but the pay statement hasn't been amended and is still available from our online system. How — if at all — do I get these vacation days back?

You're not my Ontario employment lawyer, I understand.
My employer urges its people to arrange vacation plans as early in the year as possible. I did so after getting my first pay statement of the year. But now when I look at my current online statement (we get nothing on paper), the vacation allocation's down 64 hours from the initial value.
I checked with HR, and they replied basically that "Yeah, we had a problem with a few statements at the beginning of the year, but we fixed it now". I had never received any notice of this amendment until I queried today, and the first pay statement online still shows the 64 extra hours.
Is a pay statement a contract? Basically, I'm royally peeved that I'm now going to have to rearrange and cancel vacation plans due to some HR droid's error. I like my employer, and my employer likes me, but this is deeply disappointing. Do I escalate internally, lawyer up (and likely poison my work situation), or ... ?
