Mayor Yves Lévesque will announce on Monday evening, at the regular council meeting, that the city is abandoning the idea of fluoridating its drinking water.
According to two learned sources familiar with the matter, the mayor will announce it tonight, even if the item does not appear on the agenda.
Some elements remain to be addressed for the program to be phased out, which could therefore be formalized at a later date. But the first magistrate will announce his colors all the same Monday evening.
The drinking water fluoridation project had been a major subject of discussion in recent months, particularly due to strong opposition and a petition signed by more than 20,000 people despite public health advocating for the drinking water fluoridation program.
