- And the efforts to reduce public purchasing costs for generic drugs discussed in the column include the national initiative reported on by CBC, as well as Alberta's more recent push.
- But hopefully my concern will be rendered moot by the election of a new B.C. government. And the latest revelations in the long-running B.C. Rail scandal may go a long way toward making that happen.
