From the National Post:
PM won't support premiers' drug plan
Paul Martin said yesterday he had little interest in a proposal that Ottawa take full responsibility for a national pharmacare program, suggesting the recent idea from the provinces is overly simplistic and ignores such priorities as waiting lists and homecare.

The Prime Minister said his government only talked about a pharmacare plan for "catastrophic" or unaffordable drug bills, not the broader plan proposed by the premiers in July.
