 News from the Village Office
    The Saskatchewan Health Region requested the following: “that since we are upgrading the water sys-
 tem in the Village, we look into the possibility of adding “fluoridation” to the water based on Health Canada                                                    Art & Eatery
 recommendations.” We have contacted our engineers and they have informed us that the City of Saska-                             CO-OP
 toon fluoridates, but the City of Regina does not. There may be definite benefits, but there are those who                                                        Hours of Operation
 say it could be dangerous to the health. We would like to have the public give their feedback on this issue.                    FARM SUPPLY
