From the Toronto Star:
Premiers push national drug plan
Canada's premiers are proposing a national pharmacare program they say is a "visionary" attempt to improve medicare for future generations.

At the conclusion of their annual meeting here yesterday, the premiers and territorial leaders called on the federal government to assume control of billions of dollars' worth of prescription drugs with the creation of a national program to pay drug costs for seniors and welfare recipients as well as people facing so-called "catastrophic" drug bills.
