    I wouldn’t put too much in anything that idiot Canton writes on masslive. That guy is a moron. He reported that child who drown in SH last summer as “swimming with friends when she went under” then we learned she had fallen off a dock. That guy is a drunken, brain dead idiot. Don’t believe anything he writes over there.
