Below is one side of a flier we put together that you can copy and paste if you want onto 1 side of a standard 8.5 X 11 piece of paper.

You may have to manipulate the writing and pictures after you copy them to get them to fit, or you may want to add other material.

Then do the same with the other flier for both sides of the sheet of paper. Also you can use Black & White to save money over color.

Calgary city council has voted 10-3 to remove fluoride from the city's drinking water.

Earlier in the day, city council considered and rejected by a vote of 8-5 putting the fluoride issue to a plebiscite in the 2013 municipal election.

Opponents question the safety of fluoride in drinking water and suggest it should be up to individuals to decide whether to expose themselves to the additive.

Ald. Druh Farrell, who led the anti-fluoride charge, said helping families who can't afford fluoridated toothpaste is a better idea than medicating the entire population.

"It's not our responsibility, but what we've said is because we had this responsibility and because children in poverty are used as a reason to support fluoride, then let's really help those children," she said.

City faced costly plant upgrades

Ald. Jim Stevenson said there's insufficient medical proof that keeping fluoride in the water has any benefit.

"We as a council have to show some leadership here. We have no right to force this right on all Calgarians. I would really question our right to put it in, but. I don't question at all our right to remove it."

The timeline for the removal of fluoride remains unclear, as the city must apply to Alberta Environment to amend its water licence.

The city should also save money with the move. The cost of adding fluoride to Calgary's water is about $750,000 per year.

Why are all the counties the same? It appears Flouridation has no effect.

This warning is from a Colgate Toothpaste box. Is this really the best we can do? What about the water?
