Herbert Madill said that a Why the department has a contract with a Montreal firm a Labora Toire Bio Recherche Ltee a to test a nerve Gas antidote developed at cab Suffield which could be used by Canadian and other armed forces. A a it a a sad fact of life but chemical weapons Are being used More and More in military conflicts Between third world nations. A if we re going to Send our men into those countries a even to keep the peace a we have to make sure they Are protected against such ugly weapons a Madill said in an interview from Ottawa. About 20 Montreal area men have volunteered to test a drug called hi-6 which combats the deadly effects of nerve Gas. Madill said actual nerve Gas is not used in the tests. The tests Are designed to find out what Levels of hi-6 Are dangerous to human health. Hi-6 is not a danger in Low level doses he said. But health and welfare Canada has specified that All those tested with hi-6 must sign a release form which recommends they advise their sex partners to take birth control measures during and at least three weeks after the Experiment. Previous tests by National defence show that at High Levels hi-6 has caused severe fetal formations in animals. Jean Frere director of administration with Bio Recherche said the men were found simply through advertising in local newspapers. They Are paid a in the neighbourhood of $500 to $550.�?� Frere would not give out any ifs a sad fact of life but chemical weapons Are being used More and More in military conflicts Between third world More information about the tests saying it was classified. Madill would not disclose How much Money is involved in the contract with Bio Recherche but said a a it a less than $1 he said he hoped the tests would be completed sometime in Early 1991. After that it could take another two to three years before the hi-6 antidote would be available for soldiers in the Field he said. Each Soldier would carry three injection limits and if a nerve Gas attack was suspected he could inject himself in the leg with the antidote. Madill said that hi-6 was first tested in Yugoslavia 10 years ago but has never been tested in the West. Capt. Don Roy a spokesman for the defence department said Friday that Canada has 15 soldiers on the Iran Iraq Border As part of a in peacekeeping Force which was set up in 1988. Roy said hi-6 is being seriously considered because atropine the agent currently used against nerve Gas has some serious Side effects. He said the hi-6 tested in Montreal is manufactured at National defence laboratories in Suffield Alta. It has been tested on animals before but this is the first time that humans have been used in the experiments. Gis As saying in his letter to Gorbachev a fall countries big and Small.
