Blaze that gutted studio under investigation
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.
