From the Globe and Mail:
McGuinty tries to heal rift
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty moved yesterday to heal the rift between the federal and provincial governments over fixing medicare, saying a federally funded drug plan may not be essential to a deal.

Mr. McGuinty's comments set the tone for a premiers meeting beginning in Toronto tomorrow at which provincial leaders will plan their strategy for a health summit with Prime Minister Paul Martin. The premiers want Ottawa to develop and pick up the costs of a national pharmacare program.
