Vancouver Headlines: July 8th

July 8, 2011 | by  |  Vancouver Headlines

Top headlines from Vancouver and beyond for July 8 2011:

The infamous Red Gate Studios, an artist-run gallery space by day and music/movie/party venue by night, is set to shut down unless the building can be brought up to code by the end of summer.

A B.C. roofer has died after falling through a skylight in former premier Gordon Campbell’s summer home. As per usual, the comments over at the Globe have quickly descended into Freemason conspiracy theories.

Conservation officers shot and killed a cougar in Sidney on Vancouver Island after the RCMP received numerous calls following sightings of an adult cat roaming through backyards.

The RCMP is investigating the possibility of arson at the former home of U.N. Gang member Conor D’Monte. Neighbours called 911 early this morning as the $1.6-million house, sold by the wanted gangster to his girlfriend for a dollar in April, was seen engulfed in flames.

An 18-year old Western Ontario student became the third person rescued by North Shore Search and Rescue this summer after deciding to take a shortcut through the bush to avoid a switchback. Having spent the night curled up in the bush, Roz McLean told media at the trailhead that next time she would better prepare herself to avoid a similar incident. Good call, Roz.
