Alderman Questions Fluoride in Water

 
 

LEETHBRIDGE: The debate that has tentacles stretching from the US to Calgary has now snaked into this Southern Alberta city- the question of whether to keep fluoride in the city's drinking water.

At Monday night's city council meeting, Alderman Bridget Mearns directed staff to unearth more facts about the issue.

Included in her list of questions is how much fluoride is currently in Lethbridge drinking water, and exactly what amount is supposed to be an acceptable level.

She says she's not completely surprised to hear many people are against leaving the fluoride in the water.

"I think a lot of people are recognizing that our dental care has changed a lot since it's come in," says Mearns. "That we have the opportunity to get fluoride through other avenues, we don't necessarily need it in our water as well, even if it were to be a bit of a benefit."

The issue will next come up for discussion at a public community issues meeting on Monday, February 28th.
