From the Canadian Press:
Ottawa has money for drug program, provincial finance ministers say
Ottawa has the money to set up and pay for a national pharmacare program despite its insistence to the contrary, provincial finance ministers said Friday.

The ministers argued the federal government consistently cries poor even though it is awash in cash, saying it has underestimated its revenues by about $73 billion over 10 years. "The federal government has the capacity to fund the kind of reforms that we're proposing," Ontario's Greg Sorbara said after meeting his provincial counterparts at a downtown hotel.
