Residents are being invited to book speaking time at a public meeting at city hall May 29 to discuss fluoride in water.

The public meeting is set to start at 3 p.m., including presentations by Dr. Sudit Ranade, Lambton County’s medical officer of health, and Dr. Hardy Limeback, former president of the Canadian Association of Dental Research.

Those who wish to speak can email fluoride@sarnia.ca. Anyone in the public gallery will also have an opportunity to speak, an announcement from the city clerk reads.

People can also email comments until June 2, it says, noting the information from those emails and the public meeting will go into a report for council.

Sarnia voted 5-4 against water fluoridation in 2013, but the chemical continued in the water supply nonetheless since a majority of municipalities in the Lambton Area Water Supply System (LAWSS) voted to keep it.

Those member municipalities are also being invited to the May 29 meeting.
