Dear Green Party of Canada,

I have been a loyal, emphatic, lawn-sign-bearing, persuasive Green voter since I moved to downtown Toronto (Spadina/Fort York riding) in 2002. I have been mostly in line, if not utterly delighted, with all of Green's policies. But recently social media drew my attention to the resolution to ban water fluoridation. This is the first time a Green Party policy has struck me as being (pardon me) bats***t crazy. Rampant tooth decay and oral infections were a leading cause of death in ancient Egypt. Tell me the Green Party is in the 21st century (CE) with the rest of us. Objections to the administration of fluoride to our population may be worth debating, but a flat-out ban is rabid panic-mongering madness that will have consequences for public health — particularly for our poorest citizens without access to regular dental care. The Green Party has been my relief in a democratic system where I have largely felt disenfranchised, but I would honestly rather vote for nobody than fall in line with what seems to be chemistry-phobic paranoia.

Help me vote for you. Clarify or scrap this resolution.

Sincerely,
Elana
