Things are not a simple as this. The Canadain drug
policy of favoring generic makers has caused generic

politically connected drug industry. This industry
exploits the basic research done by American companies
(which is subsidized by the American market) and its
political connections to charge Canadian consumers
high prices for drugs they did not create.
