From the Minneapolis Star Tribune:
Pawlenty to FDA: 'Where are the dead Canadians?’
Since he first pitched the idea of a state Web site that would help Minnesotans buy cheaper Canadian prescription drugs online, Gov. Tim Pawlenty has become one of the nation's leading advocates for prescription drug price reform. He has castigated drug manufacturers for "price-gouging," openly criticized the federal government for maintaining its ban on reimporting the cheaper drugs, and run seriously afoul of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Last week, Pawlenty discussed the issue with the Star Tribune.

From WCAX-TV (VT):
Burlington Employees Learn About New Drug Benefit
Burlington is embarking on a program that allows city employees can take advantage of cheaper drugs north of the border. Though controversial, Plattsburg's mayor is considering whether a similar program could help his city too.

The CEO of CanaRX, Tony Howard, came to Burlington's City Hall today to explain how city employees can get drugs from Canada. CanaRX is the Canadian pharmacy that will dispense drugs to interested city workers.
