A brief history of fluoride coming out of your tap:

“On Saturday, voters in Prince George will be asked to vote on this question:

‘The City of Prince George currently fluoridates its water supply. Are you in favour of the City of Prince George fluoridating its water supply?’

“It is a contentious issue, with passionate advocates on both sides of the debate.

“What you might not know is the debate has over sixty years of history, from Communist plot to suspicious chemical to today.”

I put together a story on the history of the fluoride debate for CBC. In the process, I used a lot of archival sound from the CBC archives dating back to 1949 so I decided to put together an interactive piece that let’s you explore those stories along with the new one. I hope you’ll check it out.
