PHARMA: Drug re-import bill moving into the Senate

Just a tickler update about a process that I’ve reported on enough and which has been rolling for a while, a bi-partisan group of Senators who’s staffers can read opinion polls have introduced a bill to allow Canadian imports. Meanwhile, despite some hysteria from the right in Canada, prodded by their fellow-travelers south of the border, the Canadian government has denied that there’s a shortage of product at home.

    David Mackay, executive director of the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, said Canadians are “not at all losing drug supplies needed for Canadian residents. Those who say so are fear-mongering.”

Fear-mongering? About a health care issue? Well, just imagine that!
