AHA MEDIA responded to a tweet by Vancouver Sun on twitter who announced that

AHA MEDIA remembers when Little Mountain Co-op had an Art – In to raise awareness of the situation – “Artists and community members want to stop the demolition of the 224 homes at Little Mountain and have them re-opened for families in need of affordable housing”

Please see AHA MEDIA’s post of the Art – In dated January 12, 2009 http://tinyurl.com/yfpx8s7

AHA MEDIA arrived on the scene after the Vancouver Sun’s tweet on twitter and spoke to a reliable source onsite  who said:

“The Fire had occured between 6pm – 7pm.  Workers were finishing up for the day from cutting metal. and the fire happened…There is No Conspiracy Theory!”

    I used to live quite close to there. Those were good buildings, and the residents were never any trouble; it was a lot of families whose kids played together. Such a total waste, and now the site is being sold to a developer who has said he’s not going to have it ready within a decade. Super. That’s just what the neighborhood needed, a huge hole in the ground for ten years.
