From the Toronto Star:
Pharmacare proposal 'bad public policy': Ottawa
Ottawa would never agree to the kind of national pharmacare program proposed by the premiers because it would cost too much and makes no sense, Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh said today.

With the premiers set to meet to plot their next steps in a public showdown with the federal government, Dosanjh issued his strongest rejection yet of the idea, calling it "bad public policy" that would undercut Ottawa's responsibilities.
