From the Canadian Press:
U.S. election putting pressure on Republicans to consider Cdn drug imports
So much for the golden years. Goodbye to the American dream.

From WOKR-TV (NY):

Plattsburgh Mayor Daniel Stewart says Canada may be the answer to the city's high employee health care costs.

The Press Republican of Plattsburgh reports that the mayor attended a presentation Saturday by the Canadian drug firm CanaRx.

From the Olympian (Wash.):
GOP feels pressure on Canadian drugs
The Bush administration and Republican congressional leaders are being forced to take a hard new look at the idea of importing cheaper prescription drugs from foreign countries as an election-year clamor grows for removing prohibitions.

Increases in prescription drug prices -- the fastest growing item in health care -- and the pitched partisan battle over the new Medicare law have given the topic greater prominence in Congress and on the campaign trail.
