VITA, Manitoba - Dueck Drug Store is booming in this speck of a town on the endless prairie near the Minnesota border. Dueck's - whose motto is, "We do the little things" - is where folks post notices of garage sales and want ads. And it's where a dozen shoppers browsed for greeting cards, beauty supplies and Christmas decorations while waiting for their prescriptions to be filled one recent weekday morning. But the store's owner, Lothar Dueck, fears that stores like his are being blown off the Canadian map by a blizzard of new companies that sell prescription drugs to Americans over the Internet.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Encased by iron bars and hidden behind frosted windows of what looks like an abandoned storefront, one of Canada's most successful Internet pharmacies is quietly thriving on a street known for a different kind of drug traffic. Like a speakeasy from the U.S. Prohibition era, the company, CanadaMeds.com, ushers employees and visitors into the building through a secret, guarded side entrance. "We don't want the neighbors to get any ideas about what's behind these walls," chief executive Mike Hicks said.
