The final report of the federal task force on the Canadian magazine industry has been delayed 1 1/2 months.

The report, due Dec. 31, 1993, will be released Feb. 15 instead.

The task force has written to those who made submissions to the task force telling it of the delay. And at least one task force member has made follow-up phone calls.

Sources say the research components of the report are holding things up.

It is expected the report will be available to the public as soon after Feb. 15 as it can be printed.

The federal task force, formed by the last Conservative government, was prompted by reaction to the publication of Canadian versions of u.s. magazines. DC
