On Dec. 14, Calgary city council could have significantly helped Calgarians by 1. reducing pain, suffering, cost and misery; 2. wisely investing (spending $1.29 to save $55.47); 3. addressing racial inequity; 4. honouring the will of the people expressed in two plebiscites; 5. following medical advice; and 6. attracting young families.
City council could have reinstated community water fluoridation but did not even discuss this safe and effective public health measure during a pandemic. Who do council members serve?
Juliet Guichon, president, Calgarians for Kids’ Health
