"Watchdog's budget request rebuffed"


Canada's information watchdog is warning he may have to lay off staff after having a budget request rebuffed by the federal cabinet.

Robert Marleau says he's looking at "aggressive cash management" after being denied almost $1 million over the next several years to continue investigations into systemic problems plaguing the country's access to information system ...

Asked whether he thought the government was deliberately trying to erode his mandate, Marleau said, "they're certainly not trying to enhance it."
