Calgary city council has voted 10-3 in favour of removing fluoride from the city’s drinking water.
Two members of council, Mayor Naheed Nenshi and Ald. Brian Pincott, were out of town during Tuesday’s vote.
Earlier in the day, city council considered and rejected by a vote of 8-5 putting the fluoride issue to a plebiscite during the 2013 municipal election. Council also rejected the idea of referring the matter to an expert panel.
The issue has proved a lightning rod for Calgarians, and past plebiscites have revealed public opinion is nearly even split on the matter.
In 1989, 53 per cent of Calgarians voted in favour of adding fluoride. Two years later, it was added.
