    I found this online, was that the story? A court battle about rewards on prescriptions? hmmm.

    A court ruling means Albertans will not be able to collect reward points for drug purchases or pharmacy services.
    The Alberta Court of Appeal has overturned a 2016 ruling that said the regulator of Alberta pharmacists did not have the legal power to impose a ban on consumer loyalty programs.
    The ban had been challenged by companies that own Sobeys and Safeway grocery stores.
    The Alberta College of Pharmacists appeal argued that pharmacists are a key part of the health-care system and that it had the authority to ensure high ethical standards.
    A panel of Appeal Court judges, citing a similar case last year in British Columbia, ruled the college’s ban was reasonable
    Greg Eberhart, the registrar of the Alberta College of Pharmacists, says he is pleased with the ruling because such reward programs could disrupt professional relationships and affect decisions important to care.

    That sucks for those that have been earning mega points over the years but I've always been a little green eyed here in Ontario as we could not do the same

    That sucks. Earning Optimum points on Rx is one benefit here in NS.....mind you, that might be about the only benefit
