From CBC Manitoba:
Internet pharmacies put on notice
Manitoba's internet pharmacists are calling it a declaration of war.

Their licensing body, the Manitoba Pharmaceutical Association, has sent a letter to its members warning of a crackdown.

The letter urges pharmacies to stop filling prescriptions if the signing doctor hasn't seen the patient. For some prescriptions the patients are hundreds of miles away in the U.S. and a local doctor has co-signed a U.S. prescription without meeting with the patient.
