It was also in the Globe & Mail on Feb. 28/06:
Carleton med teams to carry EpiPens, page A11
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20060228.NATS28-8/TPStory/?query= - even if the story is cut off because you're not a subscriber, it didn't say much more than what you see online.

A Carleton journalism student is coming to our OASG meeting tonight to see what we think of this. I personally think it's great. Not everyone is aware that in the U.S. there are some states where the EMTs cannot yet carry epinephrine. And it's only in the past few years that Quebec paramedics got the right to carry epinephrine.

Some general info about U.S. EMTs carrying epinephrine (or not) is at http://www.foodallergy.org/Advocacy/ems.html.
