Blaze that gut­ted stu­dio un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

MORIN HEIGHTS, Que. — The founder of the once-iconic record­ing stu­dio that served to open Canada to the rest of the mu­sic world said he made his peace a long time ago with the old build­ing that once housed it.

An­dre Perry said he’s not sur­prised the build­ing that once was home to Le Stu­dio burned to the ground Fri­day in a fire po­lice say might have been de­lib­er­ately set.

“I did my mourn­ing a long time ago be­cause it’s been a re­ally, re­ally bad state for years and years now,” Perry said from his home in Sain­tSau­veur, Que. “It was de­te­ri­o­rated in a way that it was ev­i­dent that some­thing like that was go­ing to hap­pen.” Pro­vin­cial po­lice Sgt. Daniel Thibaudeau said in­ves­ti­ga­tors would visit the site af­ter be­ing told by lo­cal fire crews that the ori­gins of the blaze ap­pear to be sus­pi­cious.
