Please leave your guns at home if you are coming to the public meeting being held at the Byron Community Centre on Wednesday October 16 for ‘Water Fluoridation, Friend or Foe?’
This is a forum that has been organised so that those who don’t know what it will mean to have their public water fluoridated can inform themselves. Many people think they know what the practice entails but really don’t.
This forum will be to bring the community up to speed with both sides of the debate. It is not a place to have a protest rally.
Abuse from either side of the fence at any of the speakers, organisers or councillors in attendance will not be tolerated.
This is one of the rare opportunities for the community to have their say on this very important issue regardless of your beliefs and to listen to the experts from both sides. Informed dialogue is a treasure beyond price.
May the water force be with us as I and my fellow councillors bravely step out into the firing line.
Rose Wanchap, Byron Shire Councillor, Byron Bay
