Our first meeting was a great success and our objective is clear – we need to help spread awareness and continue pressure on council. The community response has been supportive and positive. We have a plan to get us started and much more work to do!
We know we don’t want our water medicated with fluoride, so who decides if the fluoride should be removed?
According to Arlene King, the Chief Medical Officer of Health in a publication titled The Value of Water Fluoridation the decision to medicate our water with fluoride “is made by each local municipality in consultation with residents.”
Were you consulted?
According to Enwin, Windsor began medicating the water supply with fluoride in 1953 at the request of the Health Unit.
Please consider writing to your local council member and copy in all the council and mayor to let them know that you want clean non-medicated water. Ask them questions about what is added to our water and who is responsible for the testing and safety of the hydrofluorosilicic acid being added and ask them why we weren’t informed when Windsor began to medicate our water supply? Check out this site for more questions that we should be asking and getting answers to.
Also, take a few moments and write to the Windsor Star editor. Let the public know your opinion about not having a choice when it comes to having to ingest medication through your tap water.
