HIV Day of Action

Back in 1998 the Supreme Court of Canada decided that a person with HIV must inform a sex partner in advance if their HIV poses a "significant risk" of transmission. Since then more than 130 people living with HIV have been charged. On Wednesday, two appeal cases challenging this principle go before the Supreme Court of Canada. The cases will be closely watched by those living with HIV and lawyers on all sides, including the group "Aids Action Now." Laura spoke with Tim McCaskell who is with the group "Aids Action Now" and is HIV positive. Listen audio (runs 5:48)
