The memo said "it Is urgent o consider some projects to luslify our budget and cxls- .cncc." Labor Minister Mnrlln TConnell was responsible for 'he agency then and under Commons pressure ordered a rc-cvnluation ot It, As opposlllon spokesmen cnlled for an end to what they inw us n wasto of millions ot dollars, Information Canada in- tlatcd new projects.
