Hamilton's City Council Not Interested In Giving People The Freedom Of Choice?

One week ago I sent the mayor and all the city councilors an email in regards to the addition of hexafluorosilicic acid (fluoride) to the cities drinking water.

Here is the email that was sent:

Hello, my name is Terry Wilson.
I am a new resident of Hamilton, and my family has lived here for over ten years. I am writing you today because of something that I find quite disturbing.
The city of Hamilton is promoting that tap water is the clear choice, and that it is completely safe. But the city is still adding what is commonly known as fluoride
to the public water supply. What most people do not realize is that the "fluoride" that is being added to our water is really called hexafluorosilicic acid.
hexafluorosilicic acid is literally classified as a toxic waste, that is produced from the phosphate fertilizer industry. It is not a naturally occurring substance like your water reports state.

There is a very wide range of side effects that occurring from ingesting this substance. Just recently the 23rd scientific study linking fluoride exposure to lowered IQ in children. Among other professionals citing that there is now more evidence linking fluoride exposure to cancer, than there ever was with DDT. You can look at all of the scientific studies here: http://www.fluoridealert.org/health/

Water fluoridation is the only medical treatment in Canadian history, that has been implemented on a large scale, without the informed consent of the patients. To my
knowledge there has never been a public vote on the issue in Hamilton. In cities across Canada, who have never voted on it and now have. Barrie, Kitchener/Waterloo, and now Calgary (on the verge of a vote) have all now held votes, and the people voted it out.

The time for a vote on the issue of water fluoridation in Hamilton is long over due! I hope that you will support this, and the people of Hamilton will not have to enact the Ontario fluoridation act, to force a referendum.

No politician or bureaucrat in city hall or in Ottawa have the right to tell us what will or will not go into our bodies.

Thank you, and I will look forward to your response.
Terry Wilson

The first response that I received from city councilor Brad Clarke. Brad is himself against fluoride, and agreed to add a poll to his blog about the addition of it to our water supply. In the one day that his poll was posted, 85% percent of the voters checked off a box that said to completely remove all fluoride compounds from the water supply in Hamilton. If that was an election, it would have won in a "landslide" victory.

That one totally threw me off, but then I got the second response.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for your message regarding Fluoride in the water. This topic has been brought up in Council Meetings. As things come to light with respect to changes in the way tap water is being treated, the Council will make a public announcement.

I acknowlege your concerns, and will be recording your message.

The Mayor aprreciates hearing from residents on the many matters relating to City business.

Deanna Levy
Communications/Community Relations Administrator
Office of Mayor Bob Bratina

And the third was a short conversation with councilor Lloyd Ferguson.

Our Medical Officer of Health has advised us it is the right thing to do. I am not a medical professional and therefore rely on her advise.

I totally understand that! I am not a medical professional either. But when there is so many medical professionals, who oppose the practice, I think that it is in the best interests for the people of this great city to be given the chance to decide if they want it or not. I guess my real question is, would you support a public vote on the issue?

We had a long debate with public input two years ago and decided to stay with Fluoride. I know a number of medical doctors and dentist in Ancaster and all of them say Fluoride is the right thing to do.
Sorry I could not be more helpful.

The other twelve councilors have not replied at all.

This is very disturbing, but not new in the fight against fluoride. Although most of the population does not even know that it is being added to the water, or what it even is. And those who do know, (for the most part) all agree that we deserve a choice. Our elected officials do not seem to be interested in giving the people the
right to informed consent, or freedom of choice. They avoid the question like it is the plague, and when forced into the corner they will throw it of on to the head medical officer of health. Who of coarse fully supports it.

That is one doctor, out of the thousands in this country. Regardless if it is one doctor saying so, or every doctor in Canada saying the same thing. You still have the right to informed consent to any medical treatment!

The Canadian Awareness Network will not stop this battle until everyone in this great city gets that freedom to informed consent. These emails are only the start of what will probably be a long and hard fought battle!

    The standard "we are not medical professionals" is such an overused - and abused statement. When many countries around the world and many cities and towns have banned it because they have seen fluoride for what it is.... hello!?

    Bottom line.... cities and towns that are still evading the issue because they "are not medical professionals"... then let them know - - take out the fluoride.... and let each citizen decide for themself if they want fluoride in their toothpaste, or to get the fluoride treatment from their dentist.... this way people have choices - and are not forced.

    Craig says:

    If the ingestion of fluoride was so good why would we not just eat toothpaste?


    Its about dumbing down the population, creating disease which feeds the medical industry and ultimately its about reducing the population over time. It has ZERO to do with teeth. Its only common sense that you should not be drinking, eating or bathing in toxic waste. It needs to be stopped in Hamilton as well as every other place its being added. To continue is clearly the definition of insanity, cruelty and genocide.

    @Forex Tips and Strategies you are not helping. I am opposed to fluoridation in my water. But alarmist sounding tinfoil hat conspiracies only alienate the public from the truth about fluoride. The truth being that there are a great many medical studies linking fluoride to health problems and that it should therefore be up to an individual to decide for his or herself whether or not to take this medicine.

    It's not a grand conspiracy to reduce population or make us all idiots. And even if you think that please keep your opinions to yourself. Because wacky theories like that only make people think the anti-fluoride group is crazy. And that is not helping our cause.

    So let's keep it scientific, rational, and about free will. Don't drag conspiracy theory into this please.
