OTTAWA-- Canada's oldest and most revered scientific institution, reeling from 3 years of budget cuts, is pleading with the government for more money to shore up its scientific base and to launch projects in five areas. The National Research Council (NRC) makes its case in a still-secret report, which has been obtained by Science, that has been presented to government officials in a series of briefings. Insiders say that the NRC stands a good chance of regaining much of its core funding and winning approval for at least some of the special initiatives.
