From the Fort Worth (TX) Star Telegram:
A Drug Trek to Canada
A 68-year-old Pennsylvania woman said Thursday that she happily took a 600-mile train ride to Toronto to buy medicine that would save her thousands of dollars compared with prices in the United States.

June Marie Preston and her 67-year-old sister, Marion Hicks, live together in Douglassville outside of Philadelphia and traveled by train with 21 other Americans seeking to stock up on cheaper Canadian drugs.

"I hope to realize 50 percent savings," Preston said, noting that her asthma medications cost $556 a month.
