PETITION: Québec National Assembly petition on water fluoridation

A petition on the National Assembly’s website, states, “We ask the National Assembly of Québec to organize a parliamentary committee regarding water fluoridation in order to shed light on the scientific, sanitary, economical and legal aspects of this practice and to rule on the necessity to abolish the water fluoridation program.” The Parti Quebecois has supported a resolution opposed to fluoridation – and there is some hope now that Quebec may become the first province to ban the fluoridation of water. The petition can be signed at https://www.assnat.qc.ca/en/exprimez-votre-opinion/petition/Petition-3465/index.html. The goal is to reach at least 10,000 signatures. The deadline to sign is February 20, 2013. In April 2010, the Council of Canadians began working with La Coalition Eau Secours! in Quebec to oppose the Charest government’s plans to increase the fluoridation of drinking water there from about 3 per cent to 50 per cent. In December 2010, Eau Secours, Syndicat canadien de la fonction publique (SCFP, or CUPE in Quebec), and the Council of Canadians announced the launch of the French-language Blue Communities Project guidebook in Quebec. The project in Quebec calls for a stop to the fluoridation of drinking water. Read the 20-page booklet – Guide du projet Communautés bleues du Québec.
