From Canada East:
Lord says feds can afford drug program
Premier Bernard Lord expressed disappointment Friday that Prime Minister Paul Martin appears to be rejecting a national pharmacare program that would see the federal government take over responsibility for drug coverage.

The premiers proposed the plan at a July meeting in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., in an effort to have the federal government shoulder more of a financial responsibility for health care.
