From the Calgary Sun:
U.S. fights local pharmacy
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has pointed the finger at a Calgary-based Internet pharmacy in its fight against the cross-border prescription drug industry. But the Alberta Pharmacists Association spokesperson who has toured Total Care Pharmacy's site said there's nothing wrong with its practices.

"I saw dedicated pharmacists that enjoyed practising in a different setting and were committed to patient care," said Peggy Berndt.

She said what's led to Internet pharmacies is elevated drug prices in the U.S. -- and that's an American responsibility.
