One ol the objections -vhich rates paid in Manitoba. Before the government purchased the Bell Tel- ephone Company's .system in our province, and shortly before election, Attorney General Campbell and Pre- mier Bobliu, both stated publicly that with government ownership oi the telephone system of the provinca the-telephone rates would be reduced -by at least half. since the government has purchased the Bell Company's system in our province there has not beeii one centVof a reduction' in" the Manitoba.
