Robert Pinarreta, Resident, City of Mississauga, expressed concern with regards to particular products used in the artificial water fluoridation process, which are waste by-products of the production of phosphate fertilizer and other industrial processes. He noted that fluoride compounds are stored progressively by the human body, mostly in the bone. He stated that the elected representatives of the Region of Peel have a duty of care to its citizens and must, if in doubt, decide that it is safer to err on the side of caution and stop the addition of fluoride in drinking water.

A copy of the presentation is available from the Office of the Regional Clerk.

Reverend Scott Young, Pastor, St. Christopher’s Parish, stated that the addition of fluoride in drinking water leads to social injustice, noting that evidence shows that fluoridate in water leads to higher levels of lead in the body and has left many young people, who do not have access to proper diets or dental care, with fluorosis.

Mark Corlett, Chief Executive Officer, AVT.ca, stated that citizens should have input as to whether or not drinking water is fluoridated and that Health Canada should be required to prove that such additives are not causing harm to human health.

Dr. David Mowat, Medical Officer of Health, stated that in April, 2011 Regional Council heard 20 oral and written submissions on the topic of municipal drinking water fluoridation and resolved to continue fluoridating water at recommended levels. He noted that the report listed as item HE-B1 responds to items which he was requested to report back to Regional Council, including the method of determining the recommended levels of fluoride to be added to drinking water and fluoride in toothpaste. The levels were determined by Health Canada and are consistent with provincially recommended levels. Dr. Mowat stated that Peel Public Health will continue efforts to increase awareness of the misrepresentation of toothpaste on television, noting that toothpaste advertisements show a larger amount of toothpaste on the toothbrush than what is recommended. He undertook to write to the Advertising Standards Council as well as provincial and federal Health authorities to draw attention to the issue.

With respect to the issue of liability or breach of regulatory process by municipal Councils who support the fluoridation of drinking water, he stated that the Region of Peel’s current practice does not violate the various applicable legislation and that the two actions that have been brought to court regarding the fluoridation of municipal drinking water in Canada were successfully defended by the municipalities involved.

Councillor McCallion arrived at 10:47 a.m.

Dr. Mowat advised that since last reporting to Regional Council on the topic in April, 2011 he had received statements from Ontario Public Health and the Chief Public Health Officer of Canada supporting the practice of fluoridating drinking water.
