public lately, but the current argument between Andre Ouellet and Eugene Whelan about egg prices has been carefully orchestrated It could signal a return to the days when cabinet ministers, with a secure parliamentary majority, engaged in open bickering Mr Ouellet is the young Quebec lawyer whose recent elevation to the consumer af- fairs portfolio followed an un- distinguished two years as postmaster general Mr Whelan is the canny Southwestern Ontario farmer who, as agriculture minister, hides a shrewd political mind behind a rumpled rustic ex- terior Mr Whelan literally ate his way across rural Ontario dur- ing the July election cam- paign movipg from one out- door barbeque to the next to deliver the crucial farm vote that helped restore Prime Minister Trudeau's Commons majority Mr Ouellet had to do little more than let his name stand to win re-election in the solid- ly Liberal Montreal riding of Papmeau Now the two are feuding Unlike the Progressive Con- servatives, who are said to feel that no party rally is com- plete without a little bloodlet- ting the Liberals usually like to keep their battles quiet but vicious FEUD DIFFERENT However the Whelan- Ouellet feud is different bentfittmg as it does from ad- vance planning and from Mr Trudeau's own personal blessing It erupted Wednesday when Mr Ouellet sided with Beryl Plumptre, chairman of the Food Prices Review Board, in her criticism of Mr Whelan over egg pricing and marketing policies Mr Ouellet agreed with Mrs Plumptre that the egg mai ketmg system was a mess and said he supported her proposals that consumer representatives be named to egg marketing agencies Mr Whelan responded by again declaring that Mrs Plumptre doesn't know what she s talking about and by dis- missing the appeal for non producer members on marketing boards Such bickering is a sign of vitality in government, Mr Trudeau told reporters I m very glad that Mr Ouellet is fighting for con sumers and Mr Whelan is fighting for he said It s their jobs Sources say the whole burst of vitality was planned at cabinet to give Mr Ouellet a chance to divert the pressure of consumer complaints over high egg prices and to allow Mr Whelan room to back off from his hard line defence of egg producers They say Mr Ouellet s pre- pared statement lamenting the Whelan attack on Mrs Plumptre was redrafted on the minister's orders at least once to toughen the language And they add that Mr Whe- lan. despite his public declara- tions of surprise at Mr Ouel- let s statement, knew about it well in advance CONDONES DISSENT The feeling is that, with his regained parliamentary ma- jority, Mr Trudeau will con- done if not encourage such public dissent among cabinet members on issues that have not been finally resolved into firm government policy During the 18 months that he clung to a precarious parliamentary minority, cabinet and caucus closed ranks behind the leader and raised hardly a murmer of internal dissent The foe was massed on the other side of the Commons chamber in menacing numbers Now some say there will be a return to the pre-1972 days when cabinet members were more bold about airing their doubts in public They recall the 1969 battle over Canada's role in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization It set Defence Minister Leo Cadieux against Postmaster-General Eric Keirans The two argued the merits of Canadian membership in NATO from meeting hall platforms Mr Keirans later fought with Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey over the fate of the 'Lapalme workers a group of Montreal mail dehverymen whose company was absorbed by the post office Mr Keirans eventually left the Trudeau cabinet when he carried his public protests against government economic policies beyond the limits set by the prime minister By contrast, it was felt that cabinet bickering during the Pearson and Diefenbaker days only served to weaken the leader's image CABINET SQUABBLED In 1966 former prime minister Lester Pearson's cabinet was beset by squabbl- ing over implementation of the then controversial medicare program The issue of whether to delay medicare for a year because of the cost was hotly argued in cabinet and then on the public plat- form during a Liberal party policy conference Finance Minister Mitchell Sharp won out in that divisive fight obtaining a one-year de- lay in the medicare program over protests from a cabinet group led by then health minister Allan MacEachen Historians say the latter day cabinet feuds are mild com- pared with the arguments that raged within the Conservative cabinet of Sir Mackenzie Bow ell in the 1890s The Bow ell government eventual- ly squabbled itself out of of- fiice in 1896 There is no danger of that happening in the Ouellet- egg dispute The smooth big-city lawyer and the earthy Ontario farmer will settle their feud as easily as they planned it sources sav The egg won't end up on am one s face one observer said It will just be on Whe- lan s tie
