From Forbes:
US lawmaker says Canada drug price controls unfair
The Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert said Thursday that Canadian prescription drug price controls and patent policies were skewing the market and forcing U.S. consumers to pay more for pharmaceuticals sold in the United States.

"It is wrong that our friends in Canada use threats to steal patents of American drug companies in order to negotiate lower prices, and their price control regime is unfair to American consumers," the Illinois Republican said in a statement.
