From CBC Ottawa:
Doc takes college to court over pharmacy deals
A Montreal doctor is taking the Quebec College of Physicians to court for allowing doctors to take money and reduced rent to set up office by pharmacies.

"That goes against the spirit of our code of ethics," Dr. Daniel Poulin said Monday.

Poulin decided to blow the whistle on the deals after representatives of the Jean Coutu pharmacy offered him $500,000 and cut-rate rent to move his practice into a new pharmacy.
