Fluoride in Fraser Coast drinking water


The compulsory addition of fluoride to our drinking water is an issue that has polarised opinion within our community. It has created much heated debate with those on either side holding very strong convictions as to its benefits or potential risks.

The central problem is that this addition has been mandated by the state government without any consultation with the people who use the water. One would think that, in a democracy, such consultation would be seen as necessary.

But there will be a state election within the next 10 months, so we have the opportunity to pressure all the candidates to commit to a change of this legislation. To commit to making the addition of fluoride to drinking water a voluntary process depending on the wishes of the people.

If the legislation was so changed then it would be incumbent upon the Council to conduct a referendum of all the water users to determine whether or not they wish to have fluoride added to their drinking water.

If elected to the mayoralty next year I pledge that I will do everything I possibly can to ensure such a referendum occurs and that Council abides by the peoples decision.

Bur first we must have the legislation changed. So I urge people to let the candidates know how you feel, either for or against. Sign any of the petitions circulating or submit a ‘people’s mandate’ form with the appropriate authority.

This may be our one opportunity to allow the people’s voice to be heard on this issue, so do not let it go to waste.

The publisher Henry Sapiecha wishes to add that he strongly opposes addition of any poisons [& THAT MEANS FLUORIDE] to our drinking water supply

How dare any government do this without confirmation by the people.

If we want it we can add it ourselves to the water we drink.

Public servants tell us we need protection from ourselves & police us to the max with most aspects of our lives. Now they are telling us what to drink.

They say they know what is good for us & we have no choice.

Well F…….. you I say.Let the council people drink the poisoned water and leave us our fresh clean unpolluted water to drink
