Nova Scotia became the first province to announce a compensation package for those infected with the virus that causes AIDS through contaminated blood. The package guaranteed an income of 30-thousand dollars a year to those who were infected, as well as to their infected spouses and children. Randy Conners, who had full blown AIDS, had been campaigning for such a package for months. He said now he could rest easy. (The package covered drug costs for AIDS-related treatments, post-secondary education for children, funeral expenses and a 50-thousand dollar life insurance benefit.)
