Canadian city Orillia says no to fluoride

Orillia's politicians have said no to fluoridating the municipal water supply.
"I just believe there has to be alternatives," Mayor Angelo Orsi said at Monday's council committee meeting. "This is a very touchy decision when you're basically dealing with freedom of choice."

Councillors Linda Murray and Tony Madden were the only ones to vote in favour of fluoridation.
