UK Against Fluoridation

Australia - Meet the candidates

The candidates for Bega Valley Shire Council have plenty to say on community consultation, but don’t ask them about fluoride.
On Wednesday night, the Bega District News co-hosted a public forum at Club Sapphire, Merimbula, ahead of the coming local government election.
Around 200 people came out on the night to ask questions of candidates – with only a couple of cases of heckling.
In the first half of the night the 24 candidates who attended spoke of the biggest issue they would address as councillor, as well as what strategies they would engage in to ensure community consultation would take place. The second half zipped along with groups of candidates asked questions posed by the audience.
However, when asked if they agreed with adding fluoride to the shire’s water supplies, the majority of candidates abstained from answering.
The excuse was council had already heard from anti-fluoride campaigners, but was yet to hear a pro-fluoride presentation from public health reps...........
