iodine pills mailed out????
« on: November 11, 2015, 06:00:27 AM »
200,000 Homes in GTA Given Iodine Pills "In Case of Nuclear Disaster" 200,000 homes in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) were mailed survival kits with iodine pills, just in case of a nuclear disaster. No real media coverage about the need for this prior to today....just all of a sudden..."here's your iodine pills, have a nice day!"

No worries zek




25% will throw them out...59% won't know what to do with them..2%will lose them ...4% will sell them to get crack,dope or booze...9% will actually know what to do with them and read the instruction before hand and I leave the last 1% who will ooopps accidentally leave them out in the open so one of their kids or pet takes them and they sue the Ontaro government or a corporation for doing such a stupid thing...


and what a waste of our tax dollars sigh

I would like to see some verification of this but if it is the case I totally agree Kelee, a complete waste of money. To have them available in case of a disaster is one thing. To mail them to people when they are not required is ludicrous. Why only the GTA that makes no sense unless they are expecting a terrorist attack with  a dirty bomb.

On a brighter side is the government trying to turn all GTA residents into preppers?  :o
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

OK it is verified. They have been sent to those at the east end of the GTA and Pickering. Funny I though they keep telling us that nuclear power is safe.  :-\

Not entirely surprising. They've maintained this in the schools and public buildings in the same area since nearly when the plant opened. I suppose they no longer want the responsibility of maintaining and timely distribution of the stock themselves, at ground zero.
