In 2011, Moncton City Council voted to adopt the following motion regarding fluoride in our water supply:
That the introduction of hexafluorosilicic acid into the Greater Moncton water supply cease for a period of five years, at which time it will be reviewed;
That the City of Moncton request the New Brunswick Department of Health and/or the New Brunswick Dental Society, to collect appropriate data over this period using valid statistical research methods, comparing dental cary rates among individuals of different ages in fluoridated vs. non-fluoridated communities in New Brunswick, in order that the issue may be appropriately assessed.
The 5-year period has come to an end and City Council is seeking input on whether or not fluoride should be restored in our water supply.
