proper mvc way to get data from another web app

Hi there.

we have an opensource application that contains data i need to integrate with a new ci app that i'm building.
i have a controller called "objects" and it will have a method called "getallobjects".
This method actually has to return data from the external application.
There is an "api" of sorts for the application, but the way that I call it is by getting a URL like:

this returns a bunch of json encoded data.

how would i use this type of an api in my mvc ci app?
so far, this is what my controller looks like:
class Objects extends CI_Controller {
public function __construct()

public function getallobjects()
  $data['objectlist'] = ????

  $this->load->view('includes/template', $data);
