This article restates the false claim, yet doesn't mention anything about the source of the false report or what RCMP are doing to identify that source. Will the Brandon Sun do anything differently to improve how it verifies the authenticity of its sources!?

Also, please proofread more carefully: 2nd paragraph - "happend" needs spell check, and last paragraph - has an extra "...is reminded...".
