Council to give live talk on flouride

  • Jan. 18, 2012 4:06 p.m.

City council will be available live online starting Jan. 18, to answer questions and hear what Red Deerians and regional water customers have to say about a decision making process around fluoride.

People who want to grab a virtual coffee and chat with City council can visit to grab a seat in our virtual coffee room. Councillors will log on for one hour to chat with the public and collect surveys.

The schedule is as follows:

Jan. 18 from 10 to 11 a.m. – Councillor Chris Stephan

Jan. 24 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. – Mayor Morris Flewwelling

Jan. 24 from 3 to 4 p.m. – Councillor Tara Veer

Jan. 24 from 6 to 7 p.m. – Councillor Paul Harris

Jan. 25 from 10 to 11 a.m. – Councillor Dianne Wyntjes

Jan. 25 from 1 to 2 p.m. – Councillor Lynne Mulder

Jan. 25 from 3 to 4 p.m. – Councillor Frank Wong

Scheduling is subject to change so please visit 24 hours in advance to ensure no changes were made.

The online survey will be available only during the times noted above when councillors are live online.

It asks residents if they want council to make this decision based on a plebiscite, public consultation or with the information they already have.

“This is the public’s last opportunity to give input into a decision making process to address this issue,” said Tara Shand, senior communications officer. “This is the last piece of consultation around the decision making process specifically, with a final report going back to council on February 6th. At that time, City council will determine next steps.”

For more information about the consultation process around fluoridation of The City’s water, visit or call 403-356-8984.
