B.C. government funding reinstated for drug watchdog group
By Lori Culbert, Vancouver Sun, October 22, 2013
B.C.’s drug watchdog agency will again be reviewing what’s in your medicine cabinet after the provincial government announced Tuesday it would restore funding for the Therapeutics Initiative.
The surprise move is an about-face for the provincial Liberals, who cut the University of B.C.-based Therapeutic Initiative’s $1-million funding in half in 2010, before severing it completely in September 2012.
