Little Things Matter: Our children and White Rock’s unsafe drinking water

Watch this short 7 minute video that Dr. Lanphear presented last night in White Rock on the dangers of even small amounts of lead and arsenic in our White Rock drinking water.

There are NO safe levels and fetuses and the young are being placed at risk because the city wants a “cash cow”. That’s not right!

White Rock water has far higher levels of both of these toxins in our drinking water than the maximum amount allowed. Their plans to reduce the levels will do little to help our most vulnerable residents: our children.

Fraser Health recommended in 2013 that we switch to Metro Vancouver water which has ZERO lead and arsenic.Council chose to ignore that recommendation and continue to use lead, arsenic, and manganese contaminated White Rock well water because it was a “cash cow”. That’s not right!

#VoteSmart on Oct 20th because #HealthMatters.
Vote for Democracy Direct because your health and the health of children matters.

Thank you to Dr.Lanphear and thanks to Ross Buchanan for bringing White Rock this important information about the impact of our drinking water on our health.
