From the Toronto Star:
National drug strategy urged
While acknowledging that a national pharmacare plan is still years away, Canada's health ministers insist lower prescription drug costs are coming sooner.

The ministers capped their three-day meeting here yesterday by announcing the creation of a task force to develop and implement a national pharmaceuticals strategy to look at such things as bulk purchasing, faster approval of new breakthrough medicines and catastrophic drug coverage.
