Seniors group rethinks tie to Canadian pharmacy
The Minnesota Senior Federation is considering its next move after learning that the owner of a Canadian mail-order pharmacy that contracts with the group violated Ontario's drug -pricing laws.

Peter Wyckoff, the federation's executive director, said the revelation, made by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in letters to several members of Congress, "was a complete surprise to us."

In 2002 the federation launched a Web site linking Americans to CanadaRx.net as a way to save on prescription drug costs. About 6,000 federation members use its drug importation program, and most buy from CanadaRx.net by phone, fax or the Internet.
