Help stop Manitoba's cell phone rates from skyrocketing 

On May 2, Bell Canada struck a deal to buy Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS).

This would reduce options for cell services in Manitoba from four to just the big three national providers: Bell, Rogers and Telus. In Ontario, BC and Alberta, which only have the big three providers, all cell phone packages are dramatically more expensive with fewer options.

For example, none of the big three providers offer unlimited data like MTS does—and charges for going over can be huge.

But it’s not a done deal. It can still be stopped!

NDP Call for Leadership in Response to Crisis in the North: Loss of Freight Service Adding Insult to Injury

Pallister and his cabinet are failing families in Churchill, in the North and across Canada by not taking leadership to find a solution to the devastating impact of OmniTRAX’s abrupt decision to layoff staff in Churchill and cut back on freight rail service, MLA for Flin Flon Tom Lindsey said today.

Sources have informed the Manitoba NDP that OmniTRAX is also cutting freight shipments by rail from twice a week to once a week starting July 29th.
