From CBC Calgary:
Local Internet pharmacy to supply U.S. city
There are concerns that a Calgary-based Internet pharmacy's unusual deal with an American city could set a dangerous precedent.

Total Care Pharmacy recently signed a contract with the City of Boston to supply as many as 14,000 employees and retirees with cheap drugs.

Boston is the largest city in the United States to sign such a deal. Mark Reynolds, a city spokesman, says the project will save Boston about $1 million a year in drug costs.

Already, Reynolds says, the deal is attracting attention. "There is a certain amount of interest and we've had other cities and states call us and ask us for information."
