Do these errors shock you?

This article ("Would-be homebuyers shocked at Vancouver prices" on CBC News online on March 12, 2012) features a few problems. In the first sentence above, wants should be want. In the second sentence, it seems a word is missing between first and in, and but should be by. Then,

the word of should be inserted between much and a. Then,

that neighbourhood of Vancouver is West End. Then,

the word at should be inserted between looked and a. Then,

the neighbourhood is still West End. That first sentence in the second paragraph is not a question. Click an image to enlarge it.
