Thirty-one-year-old Raymond Peter Miron began a relationship with a woman in September 1996 one month after having been served with a public health order not to engage in unprotected sex, according to a CP report.  The woman, who has two children from a previous relationship, was infected with the virus.

In January 1998 Miron was served with a second public health order but had unprotected sex with another woman whom he began dating four months later.  She later tested HIV-positive as well.

Miron had two other sexual relationships with women in 1994 and 1995 after he had tested positive and attended safe sex education programs.  Although unprotected sex was practiced, neither woman has tested positive for HIV.
