From the Miami Herald:
Canada feels squeeze from drug makers
Because of strong resistance from major pharmaceutical manufacturers, presidential candidate's John Kerry's plan to enable Americans to buy cheaper drugs abroad may not be as easy as he envisions.

The reason is that many of the large manufacturers, led by Pfizer and GlaxoSmithKline, have cut off a huge chunk of the international traffic by reducing supplies to Canada.

That has left Canadian pharmacies looking around the world to find drugs, adding a third party to what is already a complicated international transaction.
