CORNWALL Ontario – Council decides whether accept a report from management and decide on September 22, 2014 to foot the bill and add fluoride to our drinking water or not.
With the new treatment plant upgrade costs could be steep while many in the public are demanding an end to the adding of these chemicals to our water.
Currently no Flouride is being added to Cornwall drinking water and it will cost between $250-$300K to upgrade plus about $50K per year in costs to administer.
While it should seem like a no brainer this is the Kilger council we are talking about.

CFN asked all of the declared candidates for a comment for publication.
Candidate Rony Macarone stated:
From candidate Gary Samler:
Fluoride is a highly toxic corrosive substance that can cause a range of adverse health effects over long time usage. Adding these chemicals to our water system is unsafe, unnatural and unnecessary
There is no scientific proof that adding fluoride to our public water system is in any way effective. I will work to support any safe water campaign.
Eating healthy and brushing your teeth after meals will benefit our health and environment more than adding dangerous chemicals to our water. Gary W. Samler
Candidate for Mayor Jamie Gilcig added:
