"Shoppers Drug Mart Corp. (SC-T38.771.624.36%) is hailing an Ontario court ruling that will allow it to substitute its own discount brand of prescription drugs for those made by big pharmaceutical companies.

An Ontario court ruled in a decision released Thursday against a provincial regulation that bars the sale of private-label generic drugs on the same basis as other generics."

In other words, Shoppers can make "Shoppers brand drug X" and sell it in Shoppers stores. (similarly, I presume Loblaws can have Presidents' Choice minocycline, etc. )
