From the Canadian Press:
Internet pioneer closes Manitoba pharmacy; blames dollar, uncertain climate
Just one year ago, Mark Rzepka was opening a $1-million Internet pharmacy in the small Manitoba town of Niverville believing he would be able to quadruple his staff within 12 months.

On Wednesday, the pharmacist considered one of the industry's pioneers issued layoff notices to all 10 employees at Mediplan Health Consulting. The pharmacy just south of Winnipeg will close Dec. 31 and consolidate operations at the parent office in Minnedosa, Man.
