You can help the We Deserve Safe Water movement in a number of important ways..
First, become educated on the issues surrounding artificial fluoride (hydrofluosilicic acid), the industrial chemical by-product that is added to the City of Edmonton municipal water.
Second, share these issues and your concerns about artificial fluoride (hydrofluosilicic acid) with your city council representative, newspapers, and friends.
Third, take action: insist to city council to place an immediate moratorium on the chemical additive hydrofluosilicic acid to our tap water.

To THE CITY OF EDMONTON and CITY COUNCIL & MAYOR, PLEASE IMMEDIATELY STOP BY MORATORIUM ALL WATER FLUORIDATION (hydrofluosilicic acid) to EDMONTON'S DRINKING TAP WATER. The practice is not necessary, is not effective, is not safe, and is not medically ethical. I do NOT provide my informed consent to water fluoridation: not in any form and not in any amount.
