Blame Canada


TORONTO -- Canada can't continue to be a cheap "drug store for the United States" and intends to ban bulk export of prescription drugs when supplies are low at home, the health minister said Wednesday.

Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh said he must ensure Canadians continue to have access to an adequate supply of safe and affordable prescription drugs, and he would launch initiatives, including legislative and regulatory changes, to protect the supply and safety of Canadian drugs.

So basically Canada is just attempting to maintain its free-rider status with regards to Americans funding drug research and Canadians being the beneficiaries of price discrimination from the pharmaceutical companies. Perhaps we can respond by banning drug exports to Canada and prohibiting companies with US patents from producing drugs there.
