Toronto Chapter of the Council of Canadians

Our Water Campaign is thrilled that the resolution our chapter proposed in 2011 dealing with fluoridation is now part of the national Council’s policy. The UnFluoridate It! movement is growing; an increasing amount of municipalities now have moratoriums and many more are questioning this practice because of the danger it poses to health and environmental pollution.

The Unfluoridate It! Campaign was developed to help communities end artificial fluoridation of their tap water through municipal democracy. Water fluoridation is the addition of fluoride chemicals to public drinking water to increase our fluoride intake, but this increased fluoride is overdose for many individuals (athletes, formula-fed babies, diabetics, etc.) The Unfluoridate It! campaign aims to remove this one valid reason for choosing bottled water over municipal tap water.

Water fluoridation is practiced in most urban areas of Canada but is concentrated in southern Ontario where one quarter of Canada’s population lives, and where most municipal water is sourced from and discharged back into the Great Lakes. Ironically, southern Ontario is also where top quality, low-fluoride spring water from glacial moraines and the Niagara Escarpment is being heavily depleted by multinational water bottlers. The two largest global beverage companies (Dasani bottled by Coke and Aquifina bottled by Pepsi) that operate in the Greater Toronto Area source their water from municipal supplies, and pay much cheaper industrial water utility rates.

Unfluoridate It! is a companion to the UnBottle It! Campaign that aims to reduce plastic bottled water consumption. Unfluoridate It! also aims to raise consciousness that all drinking water is borrowed from and returned to the environment. The chemicals we add to drinking water today go back to the environmental commons that hold the source water for tomorrow.

Nationally, the Council of Canadians is opposed to the fluoridation of drinking water, and is concerned by the health and environmental impacts associated with it: http://canadians.org/water/issues/fluoride/index.html

Muskoka Citizens Opposing Fluoridation

MUSKOKA CITIZENS OPPOSING FLUORIDATION (muskokacof) is a not-for-profit association of professionals, volunteers, and affiliates whose goal is to educate the citizens regarding the health and environmental hazards of water fluoridation. Our mission is to work together to end artificial fluoridation in the Muskoka towns that are presently artificially fluoridating the municipal water supply. We appreciate any input from our members and encourage new research, evaluation of data, critiquing of information, delegations at district meetings, distribution of petitions/flyers, and other initiatives or actions to strengthen our cause.

Fluoride Free Peel

Fluoride Free Peel is a group of concerned citizens calling for an end to adding hydrofluorosilicic acid to our local drinking water.

Everyone has the right to supplement fluoride intake if they so choose. However, nobody, including a governmental body, has the moral, legal or ethical right to medicate anyone without their consent.

We reject the claim that there is no harm caused by ingesting hydrofluorosilicic acid (aka fluoride), even in small amounts. The proven risks to health greatly overwhelm the purported and unproven benefits. Fluoridation must be stopped as soon as possible to prevent further injury.

The rights of the people of Peel Region are being violated by medicating us without our informed consent. Many are suffering from the addition of this toxin to the water without realizing why.

It’s time to stop this injustice. Time to stop this public heath debacle.

Water fluoridation provides no provable benefit while causing harm to our health and the environment.

Our Mission:  The mission of Fluoride Free Peel is to inform the public and our city officials of the hazards of fluoridation and to put a stop to this egregious practice.

Please get involved. We’re in this together!

The prescription pad saysFluoride is safe and effective for preventing tooth decay and artificial water fluoridation is a cost effective means of getting this medicine out to the population.  So says the government health and dental agencies. But they don’t define what ‘fluoride’ they’re talking about when they speak in favour of the artificial water fluoridation program. So, let’s get to know the fluoride that is actually put in our water supply as medicine for our teeth.

In October 25, 2010 following four long years of campaigning, presentations, forums, and debates; Waterloo, Ontario citizens voted to shut down their 45 year fluoridation practice. Decommissioning of fluoridation equipment and hydrofluorosilicic acid (HFSA) ensued shortly thereafter on November 29, 2010.
