Ontario: HIV Test, Results in 60 Seconds

Ontario to provide HIV tests that give results in just 60 seconds, more test sites

TORONTO (CP) - Ontario has become the first jurisdiction in North America to offer HIV tests that provide results in just 60 seconds and will double the number of sites across the province where anonymous tests are available, Health Minister George Smitherman announced Friday.

"I'm a gay man, and I'm one of those that has experienced that gut wrenching three-week wait," he said. "Everybody remembers that wait, and accordingly, you can't put a price on it."

Now if homosexuals were really into love, commitment, and long term relationships, and not just into lustful encounters, why would they need a 60 second test?

Sorry to burst your bubble there, Robert, but AIDS is not a homosexual disease and has not been for more than 20 years now.

Michelle, since blood screening years ago, AIDS has returned home to be a homosexual disease. You also missed the whole point of my post.
