From the Appleton (Wisc.) Post-Crescent:
Suburb OKs buying Canadian drugs
The Common Council adopted a program Tuesday to allow city government employees and retirees and other residents of this Milwaukee suburb to buy prescription drugs from Canada.

Although the state of Wisconsin operates a Web site to help people get the cheaper Canadian drugs, backers said the program is the first to be enacted by a local community in the state.

After two hours of debate, the council voted 4-2 for the voluntary plan aimed at saving money for the city and others through purchases of the less expensive drugs from Canada.
