Local Queensland councils are removing fluoride from the water systems
The Queensland government is facing calls to make water fluoridation mandatory, after another council decided to remove fluoride from its supply.
Within months, six councils have removed fluoride from their systems, the latest being Mackay.
Local Mayor, Greg Williamson says they’re following the will of the people.
‘We have to represent what the community is desiring, and from a very personal perspective, I have a philosophical stance against governments putting anything into the water supply that is not designed to make it a potable water supply.’ – Mayor Williamson told 3AW News.
