Re: “My plans and hopes for a better Halifax in 2013

Clean water please! Many cities across Canada, and around the world, have stopped fluoridating their public water supplies. While fluoride may have certain oral benefits, the fluoridated water we consume is regulated throughout our entire bodies, where it can have adverse effects. Please look at other cities such as Moncton, and understand why they have stopped this practice. Clean, chemical free, drinking water is an obvious choice, and one that people deserve to have available to them. The water supply is not the appropriate place to be mass medicating the general public. I truly hope that Halifax will be a leader on this issue, instead of waiting several years, and then following the trend. Fluoridating the water costs tax payers quite a bit of money annually. I hope others will help Halifax work towards being a city that provide its people with clean drinking water in 2013. Good luck with everything Mayor Savage. I appreciate having the opportunity to voice my opinion here.

Re: “My plans and hopes for a better Halifax in 2013

Clean water, please! Many cities across Canada, and worldwide, have stopped fluoridating their public water supplies. It may be beneficial for teeth, but that fluoridated water is distributed throughout our entire bodies where it can cause adverse effects. People want and deserve clean, chemical free drinking water. It is an obvious choice. I encourage people to look at the other cities, such as Moncton, who have stopped fluoridating their water, and understand why they have done so. Halifax should be leading the way for clean drinking water, rather than waiting, and following the trend later. The water supply is not the right place for medicating the public. Thanks Mike, and I'm glad to have the opportunity to express my opinion here. I hope some others will help work towards this goal for 2013. It can also save us some money, as fluoridating the water supply costs taxpayers quite a bit of money annually.

Re: “Strip-malling Tantallon

I hope the Tantallon area grows, but I encourage people there to forget about drive throughs. They are a step backwards, not forwards, as they are bad environmentally, unhealthy, and extremely lazy. Tantallon is a very nice area. Work towards keeping it that way by promoting healthy living. Canadians could have met Kyoto Accord goals, simply be doing away with drive through.

Re: “Strip-malling Tantallon

What do they want drive throughs for? That is a step backwards, not forwards. Drive through is really bad environmentally, not healthy, and extremely lazy. I hope this area can develop more, but drive through is the last thing anyone needs.
