From the Globe and Mail:
Manitoba on-line pharmacies given go-ahead -- with restrictions
Internet pharmacies can operate legally if they follow stricter standards, the Manitoba Pharmaceutical Association has decided, after the regulator and Canada's largest provincial group of on-line drugstores met yesterday to talk about their differences.

Gary Cavanagh, president of the pharmaceutical association, said his group still has not decided what new rules the Internet operators would need to follow, but he is optimistic that Manitoba can become the first province to amend its regulations in a way that lets Internet pharmacies circumvent the usual requirement that a Canadian doctor see a patient before writing a prescription.
