I have a strong conviction about the right of drug companies to charge what they want under a period of protection. I understand the alternate viewpoint of others who say that we have drugs today and that people are suffering because they can't afford the high prices...but I believe that's somewhat more short sighted since the reason the drugs were developed in the first place is because the drug companies felt they could rely on that period of protection.

I feel Canada should uphold the same IP protection for drugs as well, but I'm not convinced that people from the US shouldn't be allowed to go to Canada for cheaper drugs. Enforcing laws about moving prescription drugs across borders, essentially having a government subsidize a company by helping the company segment its market across borders seems a bit wrong to me. I think a company should have the protection but should be responsible for its own regional pricing.
