OTTAWA (CP) Liberal backbenchers appear to be in- creasingly outspoken about their government. Wince the loon government of Prime Minister Tmdeau was formed, the ordinary MP has said little to indicate any differ- ences with policy. Now there are signs of change, both in the Commons and constituencies. Ordinarily, dissent among parties is reserved for the oppo- i s i t i o n. Conservative Leader i Robert Stanfield has had his ups and downs, particularly with Western MPs still hankering for the John Diefenbaker days. Dis- sent for some NDP members is a way of party life. For the Tnideau Liberals, It is a relatively recent thing. But, like prime ministers be- fore him who have faced the same phenomenon, Mr. Tmdeau may well find the ranks lighten- ing fast when the next election is called, as is expected for next year. Gordon Blair (L-Grenvilie Carle ton) has been sniping, pretty steadily at the govern- ment's bilingual policy. He was the only Liberal mem- ber to criticize openly the meth- ods used in promoting new Ca- nadian friendships with Russia and China. While several of his col- leagues privately expressed re servalions, Mr. Blair wrote newspaper columns and gave interviews to voice his fears that the government was going overboard in trying to win friends in Russia and Peking. New friends should not be ac- quired at the expense of old ones like the United States he scid. Mr. Blair, chairman of ult Commons committee on proce- dure, has talked freely and fre- quently lo his constituents about what he regards as the perils of the government emphasis on French equality in the public service. Many of his constitu- ents are English public serv- ants. Now be has company, to spare. Steve Otto (L-York who happens to he parliamen- tary secretary to Supply Minis- ter James Richardson, rose Thursday in the Commons lo demand a special debate on the measures that Canada should take lo offset proposed eco- nomic legislation in the United States. These motions are almost in- variably proposed by the opposi- t i o n. Government sunporters arc expected to air their views in caucus where cabinet minis- ters can take note of their con- cern. Mr. Otto, who has been much more critical lhan most Liber- als in the post, told the Com- mons it is imneralivc that a special debate he held "lo en- Canada's economic sur- vival." He eagerly accepted the offer by Conservative House Leader Gerald W. Baldwin to second his motion. Liberal members then refused to give the motion the required unanimous consent. Popular Eugene Whelan (L- who seldom creates storms of controversy, asked on Friday that the officials advis- ing Finance Minister Benson on the taxing of co-ops and credit unions be fired. Added the former parliamen- tary secretary: "II is more dif- ficult to get rid of a civil serv- ant than a backbencher, be- cause top civil servants are here forever and backbenchers come and go like the wind. "If we pass (his legislation in its present form, when this backbencher goes, he will go in the damnedest storm you ever saw." Also on Friday. John Reid Hiverl urged the opposition to move a motion of non-confidence based on the the government is distribu- ting parliamenlary office space. Mi1. Reid, chairman of the broadcasting committee, said many Liberal backbenchers would vole against the govern- ment for turning the Cenlrc Block and Wesl Block, where the ordinary MP's offices are located, into a haven for "min- islers and their flunkeys." Meanwhile. Mr. Blair was writing another weekly news- paper column to his constituents to tell them that "the public is fed up with 'the party game' as it is played in the House of Commons." Parlies are necessary but "few would disagree Ibat they have gone too far and Income too powerful. There must Iw more 'free' discussion in our public life." he wrote. There mus' be room for disa- greement within parlies, and Ibis disagnvmont must ex- pressed in public to have any significance "I Kivo found also thai Ibe I'ravens doM'l fail when disa- greements arc brought oul into tho open."
