nothing screams confidence like...

... the water company giving out free water filters.


This past week, EPCOR stopped by my house to test the neighbourhood water (Queen Alexandra is an older neighbourhood and apparently still has a few lead pipes), which was fine, but I was a little amused/concerned when I saw that the EPCOR water sample collector had left a complementary water filter for our use.

I'm generally a big supporter of tap water (as opposed to the scam which is bottled water), but I'm wondering if there's something we should know that EPCOR isn't telling us...

A government-owned corporation would never lie to you.

Better get that tin foil hat on your head. Just be sure to stay out of the sun, your brain my fry.

Haha very amusing Dave...

Curious: Do you know if Edmonton or Alberta's water is flouridated? Or if that debate has been put to rest??

I believe what happened here is that Epcor saw that there was a high concentration of Alberta Liberal voters in your neighborhood Dave. Since no one in their right mind would have actually voted Liberal, Epcor reasonably assumed that lead poisoning was to blame.

Use that Brita filter and in a few weeks you'll feel much better and be able to pick a real team, right or left, Tory or NDP. No more crazy wafflers for you young man!
