From the Boston Herald:
Canada prescription labs stunned by restriction
Internet pharmacists in Manitoba - the Mecca of Canada's $800-million-a-year online pharmacy industry - were pleading for their lives yesterday in the face of a government crackdown that could stem the flow of cheap prescription drugs to U.S. consumers.

In a little-noticed move that caught the industry by surprise, the Manitoba Pharmacy Association, the province's main regulatory agency, said last October that it would require Canadian doctors to examine American patients before co-signing their prescriptions.
