"[Jack Coleman] was exposed to poisonous gases in 1942, one of 3,500 Canadian veterans who were unwitting guinea pigs in their own government's chemical weapons experiments during the Second World War... On Thursday, Prime Minister Paul Martin announced a $50-million compensation package for those subjected to the secret tests. Each veteran would receive $24,000... Coleman spent more than a week at the military testing site at CFB Suffield, Alta., in 1942. He recalled a plane releasing a poisonous substance on himself and other soldiers lined up in a field... Len Link of Saskatoon also spent time at Suffield in 1942... In one instance, officers used an eyedropper to dot his arm with mustard gas. 'They kept asking us, "Does it burn, does it burn, does it burn?"' he remembered... A sore on Link's right arm still flares up every few months because he didn't wipe away one of the droplets quickly enough. Twice since 1942, his left leg has gone numb and his toenails have fallen off, stumping doctors."

Thats interesting about the mustard gass experiments. NCO's and officers in the Army Chem Corps used to be required to expose themselves on an arm to blister and other topical agents. Some old vets still hav the scars.
