Recently I filed a complaint about a poster that refers to Hamilton’s tap water being the “clear choice” above the water fountains in the children’s area of the Hamilton public library. You can read that story HERE
I had a chance to speak with several library employee’s that day, who all agreed with what I had to say. But I knew that the library management would not take action. This was confirmed today in an email response that I received.
Thank-you for your comment form we received today along with additional notes. It is clear you are passionate about fluoridation in our City water supply. The poster to which you refer to was one supplied to the Library by the City of Hamilton. The Library uses municipal tap water, which I believe is fluoridated, in its locations. The poster does not tell people to drink the water but merely makes people aware that the City tap water is a clear choice. While the new research you attached is compelling, it appears that fluoridation is hazardous only with acute fluoride poisoning.
The City of Hamilton maintains a safe water supply for all of its citizens. Ease of access to free City water is important, and the Library is happy to provide that ease of access, especially in our role as a cooling center, for the citizens of Hamilton. I would ask that if you have concerns about the quality of Hamilton’s water supply that you direct these concerns to City Hall or a local government representative. For now the poster will remain up.

So it seems that either the manager of the library see’s herself as quite the expert on fluoride and it’s toxicity, or she has been in touch with our public health office. It is very clear, that some one within the city of Hamilton’s staff. Obviously believes that they can ignore science from some of the most prestigious scientific communities around the world. Stating that their argument is compelling but wrong.
The audacity never ends!!!
