Premiers propose drug plan paid for by Ottawa
Canada's premiers and territorial leaders have unanimously agreed to create a national pharmacare program – but they want Ottawa to pay for it.

The leaders say they'll also ask Ottawa to increase its share of all other health-care spending to 25 per cent of the total at the federal-provincial health-care summit in September.

Ottawa now pays for about 16 per cent of health-care costs.
