Calgarians vote to bring fluoride back into drinking water

Voters were polled on the issue for the seventh time in the city’s history during Monday night’s election



Calgarians have voted in favour of reintroducing fluoride into the city’s drinking water.

According to Elections Alberta, as of 10:30 p.m. votes showed 62 per cent wanted to bring it back.

Health Canada has recommended an optimal level of fluoride at 0.7 ppm, which is what the city will do once reintroduced.

The vote is non-binding, meaning it will be up to the new mayor and city council to make a decision to implement it, once their in office.
