From the (Madison, Wisc.) Capital Times:
Canada Rx ban would hurt
Many Wisconsin residents, especially senior citizens, would be affected and upset if Canada halts mail order drug prescriptions, officials here said.

That possibility has been raised with Canadian Health Minster Ujjai Dosanjh's tough new stance on Internet drug sales to Americans. In recent weeks he has said he may prevent Canadian doctors from co-signing prescriptions unless they have actually examined the patients.

In a published report Wednesday, David Kay, of the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, said "there's a very real chance that by the middle of January drugs will not flow from Canada anymore."
