Gagnon Remains Silent OTTAWA (CP) Jean-Uuis Gagtran, director oi Information Canada, was a silent witness here before the Commons mis- cellaneous estimaets committee. All questions fay committee members were handled by Rob- ert Stanbury, minister without portfolio responsible for the new government information agency, or R. A. J. Phillips, a member of the Privy Council office who has been involved ia preliminary planning for estab- lishment of Information Can- ada. Mr. Stanbury repKed to a ser- ies of questions about an April 9 letter by Mr. Gagnon to infor- mation branches in government departments and directed that Mr. Phillips reply to questions on staffing. Mr. Gagnon did not utter a word at the two-hour meeting At the scheduled Thursday meeting, J. Patrick Nowlan, Open Daily 1 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Wednesday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Thursday and Friday 9 a.m. lo 9 p.m. College Shopping Moll 202S Mayor Magrath Drive MH. GAGNON Conservative MP for Annapolis Valley, is expected to question Mr. Gagnon directly on views he has expressed, such as favor- ing a republican form of gov- ernment. Mr. Nowlan said here in the eight of the 20 members turned Mr Gagnon's appointment by Prime Minister was political FEEii HE'S QUALIFIED Mr. Stanbury said he and Mr. Trudeau feel that Mr. Gagnon is "excepUoivally qualified" and that his former role in a politi- cal hot disqualify him as director. Mr, Staabury said "many peo- ple" %vere considered for the job and Wingualism was not an es- sential requirement. "He said he did not taw whether anyone had turned down the job. Information Canada, with a budget of will estab- lish two re gional "inquiry centres" this year, Mr.. Stan- bury said, though he did not say where, and three or four more later. Mr. Phillips said the Informa- tion Canada .staff in its first year ,wffl number some ISO and that the inquiry centres will each have a maximum staff of five. Mr. Stanbury said the agency will initiate some programs, such as federalism, the function of Parliament, the process of constitutional review and the "challenge of bilingualism and biculturalism." Mr. Gagnon was co-chairman of the royal commission on bi- lingualism and biculturah'sm which has issued four major re- ports and subsidiary studies. MAY COST MOHE Mr. Stanbury told Barry Matter that in- formation services may cost more than the annual estimated by the "task force" on information though it is hoped to improve efficiency and make sayings. Mr. Stanbury also said Infor- mation Canada will compile re- sults of opinion polls but will not likely establish iis own polling organization. The agency might let out by contract some opinion-sampling by tacking questions on "some- body else's poll to save money." Mr. Nowlan suggested that in- formation Canada is a "control agency." Mr. Stanbury said the agency will take an "over-view" of al! government informfitkw serv- ices. But it had no direct au- thority over the information branches of other government departments and agencies. Mr. Nowlan said that if Hie auditor-general was appointed in the same way Mr, Gagnon had been "Parliament wouldn't get its money's worth."
