It’s a double push by one city councilor to rid London of fluoridated tap water.
Councilor Stephen Orser will go to two city committees on the issue this week.
Monday, he’ll ask the Civic Works Committee to remove the mineral, noting their are no arguments against “chemical-free drinking water.”
If that doesn’t fly, Orser will ask the Corporate Services Committee on Tuesday to put the question,”should the city fluoridate your municipal water,” to voters on the election ballot next October.
Orser says it’s an issue Londoners are passionate about.
Council voted 10-5 last year, to continue to add fluoride to the water supply.
Windsor and Waterloo have both dropped the practice aimed at preventing tooth decay in the general population.
