End Fluoride Toronto was established one and a half years ago and this week we have reached a very significant milestone together. A few days ago our change.org petition asking Toronto City Council to end artificial water fluoridation reached 5,000 signatures. This is amazing news. Even better, we are gaining more support everyday. The word is out and people are waking up to the reality of artificial water fluoridation here and across the world.
Europeans exercise a very important practice called the “Precautionary Principle” which states that “in the absence of scientific consensus that an action is not harmful, the burden of proof that the action is not harmful falls on those taking the action.” With the published Harvard study “Developmental Fluoride Neurotoxicity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis” showing a potential adverse effect of fluoride on our children’s developing brains, why would our … Read More »
On December 8th, 2014, Ontario MPP Bob Delaney posted an update to his Facebook page on his recent “Private Members Resolution advocating Province-wide fluoridation of municipal drinking water.”
After Mr. Delaney received more than 100 negative comments about his proposal on his Facebook post (a record), all but two positive comments were deleted. Furthermore, MPP Delaney has banned any person with a view contrary to his own from being able to comment on his Facebook page at all.
Although I was happy that we have clearly made an impact on Mr. Delaney who took the time to direct his office staff to scrub dissenting comments, and that, in the very least, the voice of the people is being heard, that feeling was quickly overshadowed with a strong sense of indignation.
We the people are waking up to the reality of artificial water fluoridation, and … Read More »
There is a huge amount of activity happening in the world of activism against artificial, chemical water fluoridation in Canada now. This movement is grassroots all the way, consisting primarily of a large array of smaller groups all fighting on different fronts in different communities across Canada.
With so much activity, more transparency, new peer-reviewed studies on the effects of artificial water fluoridation, and a general influx of information being spread to all Canadians, it feels like now is the time that artificial water fluoridation is finally coming to an end.
An extremely important event that will continue this strong momentum is coming up tomorrow Thursday, June 26, 2014 in Peel Region. A lawyer from a prominent law firm will be presenting a legal opinion directly to the Peel Council regarding the illegality of adding fluoride to the water supply as it is … Read More »
We are only 3 days away from this year’s Peaceful Assembly to End Artificial Water Fluoridation in Toronto! We have been very fortunate this past couple of weeks to receive an abundance of great news:
We have just reached over 4,000 signatures on the online change.org petition to end artificial water fluoridation in Toronto
The Toronto weather forecast is showing nothing but sunshine this Friday
Some amazing new flyers are available for download to help spread the word about artificial water fluoridation and to help reach the goal of 10,000 online signatures to be provided to all 44 Toronto City Councillors (If you would like to know what your local Councillor thinks about artificially fluoridated water, see our previous blog post).
We have two flyers available for download:

Ashley and I would like to thank everyone who joined us at Saturday’s peaceful assembly at Toronto City Hall. Despite 18 hours of straight rain starting Friday night, the weather could not dampen our spirits.
Having so many people come out and stand in the pouring rain is a testament to how passionate so many of us are about getting hydrofluorosilicic acid out of our water supply. Commonly referred to as fluoride, this acid is highly toxic and has been shown by the National Sanitation Foundation to be contaminated with arsenic, mercury and radionuclides.
We started this campaign just a few months ago and have already made a significant impact. We are close to having almost 2,000 signatures on the petition to end fluoridation in Toronto. We are not alone. The public is quickly waking up to the reality of forced water … Read More »
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It has been an incredible 2 months leading up to our peaceful assembly this Saturday, September 21, 2013 from 1-5pm at Toronto City Hall. Today was particularly great as we have reached an amazing pinnacle by getting over 1,000 signatures on the www.change.org End Fluoride Toronto petition!
As well, we are happy to announce that a Press Release was issued on Friday through Marketwire and got huge reach. You can read the press release here: http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/hundreds-to-rally-at-city-hall-against-water-fluoridation-in-toronto-1830597.htm
What to Expect on Saturday
Bring a smile and a positive attitude. We are getting together peacefully to learn from one another and to inform those unfamiliar with fluoridation about the latest scientific studies showing that the chemical used to fluoridate Toronto’s tap water, hydrofluorosilicic acid, has been linked to a range of adverse health effects. As well, medicating our water supply is immoral, unethical, and … Read More »
44 City Councillors and the Mayor have the power to add a medication to our drinking water supplying 4,000,000 Toronto residents. This is very frightening and very wrong.
You can help end water fluoridation in Toronto by doing more than signing the www.change.org petition and being at the peaceful assembly on the 21st of September. Call and e-mail your Toronto City Councillor and let them know that you do not support the addition of hydrofluorosilicic acid (fluoride) to our public water supply.
Furthermore, let your Councillor know that this is a voting issue for you. With the upcoming 2014 elections looming, there is a much higher chance that they will listen.
Here is a link to all of the Toronto City Councillors by ward : http://www.toronto.ca/committees/community_councils.htm
Ask your Councillor what their position is on fluoride and follow-up with them to ensure you receive a response. … Read More »

We have spent some time putting together the following flyer to help spread the word. Please share it, print it, post it, whatever you can to help keep this great momentum going and to get the artificial fluoride out of Toronto’s water supply once and for all!

End Fluoride Toronto Full Flyer
Nearly 600 people have signed the petition to end water fluoridation in Toronto after just two weeks since the campaign was launched! We are well on our way to stopping this unethical practice!
Other Ontario cities have recently stopped fluoridating their water. In 2010 Waterloo stopped adding hydrofluorosilicic acid to their community water supply after 50.3% of referendum voters said no to fluoridation. Waterloo had been fluoridating their water for 44 years. In January of 2013, Windsor city council decided to do the same after a vote of 8-3 in favour of stopping fluoridation. Windsor had been fluoridating their water for over 50 years.
On September 21st hundreds of Torontonians plan to peacefully assemble to let it be known that they do not want toxic hydrofluorosilicic acid added to Toronto’s water supply. Let’s hope that Toronto will follow behind these other Ontario cities and end their 50 year long practice of water fluoridation.
