Anti-pipeline study does disservice to local energy customers

Dear Editor: Your recent story about the proposed Access Northeast gas pipeline project, “New report questions costs, need for pipeline project” (Canton Citizen, 3/2/17), highlights a seriously flawed analysis of the need for additional pipeline infrastructure here in New England. While your balanced story included comments from Spectra Energy refuting the study, I feel compelled […]

Project RISE: Big Changes Start Small

Submitted by Project RISE, a Canton High School Community Problem Solving Team “Migrants and refugees are not pawns on the chessboard of humanity,” were the wise words of the highly revered Pope Francis.

Galvin: Why I voted to increase pay

Dear Editor: Many residents have contacted me about legislation that increased stipends for certain positions in the legislature and pay for the state’s judges and constitutional officers.

Register of Deeds: When Hollywood comes to town

L-R: Registry staff members Rich Kennedy and Claire Martin, Robert Downey Jr., and Norfolk County Register William O’Donnell

Letter to the Editor: Not another liquor store

Dear Editor: I am writing to voice my surprise about the town’s approval of a very large liquor store in Cobb’s Corner, as reported in the December 1 edition of the Canton Citizen. As the article stated, there are already four places of business that sell wine, beer and/or liquor in Cobb’s Corner. I called the […]

Letter: Free the Rez group wants answers

Editor’s note: The Citizen provided the Board of Selectmen the opportunity to respond in writing to the questions contained in this letter. However, the board instead intends to address the matter at its next meeting on October 18. Dear Editor: I am writing on behalf of Free the Rez to discuss the activity, or lack […]

Commentary: Plenty of love for Canton River

The following is in response to a letter that appeared in last week’s Canton Citizen. Dear Editor: Why does the town hate the Canton River? The official name of that body of water is the East Branch of the Neponset River. I have a copy of the earliest map of what is now Canton and […]
