Internet pharmacies blamed for drug shortages
Some Canadians say they are having problems getting supplies of their prescription drugs and they blame the Internet pharmacy business for it.

"There was never a problem before and then all of a sudden, when the drugs started going to the U.S., we started having a hard time getting them here," Virginia Goski tells CTV News.

Goski uses a cholesterol-lowering drug called Questran. However, her pharmacy has been out of it for weeks and she's had to switch drugs.
