Share

Global News Toronto reporter Catherine McDonald tweeted a screenshot of the Facebook post, and said they were trying to confirm if the post "was written by Alek Minassian or by someone else trying to mislead the public". "Out of respect for her and her family, we will not be providing any further comments", Invesco Canada president Peter Intraligi said in a statement. Jordan's embassy in Ottawa is in contact with Najjar's family, the agency said. "She was always up for helping others".

In Toronto, yesterday's violence-free arrest was hailed as a victory.

One witness, who was driving at the time, said he at first thought the driver was having a heart attack until he saw the white van speeding and striking people on the sidewalk.

Several of the victims were named in court documents, but others were still being identified by the coroner, who brought in extra help overnight. A vigil for the victims will be held at the square on Tuesday night. Some bowed their heads and prayed.

But identities began to emerge from other quarters.

A witness, Diego DeMatos, said that the suspect's van was heading south when he saw it hit a man and a woman.

"This is a awful tragedy and our hearts go out to the people who have been affected", Facebook Inc. said.

Judge orders reopening of DACA, after 90-day delay
He said that if the department did not come up with a better defense for ending the program, Daca would be restored in 90 days. The court gave the Trump administration 90 days to challenge the ruling before reinstating DACA in its entirety.

"Toronto is a safe city but things could happen anywhere".

Among those confirmed as injured are Sammantha Samson, Samantha Peart, Morgan McDougall, Mavis Justino, Catherine Riddell, Aleksandra Kozhevinikova, Amir Kiumarsi, Yunsheng Tian, Jun Seok Park, Amaresh Tesfamariam, So Ra, Beverly Smith and Robert Anderson.

Seven patients from the incident were received at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.

Saeid Ghavami, a researcher at the Children's Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, said one of the injured, Amir Kiumarsi, was his mentor when he was a science student in Iran in 1985. Ghavami said Kiumarsi, a "well known scientist in the world of organic biochemistry", came to Canada in 2010 and has since been a force within the local Iranian community as well as a support to Iranian students wishing to study in this country.

Many said he deserved a medal. The attacker drove for two kilometers along Toronto's Yonge Street, killing 10 people and injuring another 15.

Two other classmates said they attended classes for students with special needs alongside Minassian.

"We must grieve, and we must heal, but we must also resolve to carry on", it added. D'Amico worked near Puerto Plata, on the north coast.

D'Amico volunteered at a Canada-based worldwide humanitarian charity called Live Different.

Minnasian eventually pulled over on a side street near Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue. Nearby, mourners had put together a makeshift memorial to the victims.

"The people who call this city home are shaken... but we will not be broken". Palacio says he's been in touch with D'Amico's parents, who are his constituents.

On Tuesday afternoon, in the wake of his grandmother's death, Elwood Delaney wrote a Facebook post addressing rampage suspect Alek Minassian.

The BBC reports the suspect also said he had a gun, but the officer replies: "I don't care".

"He wasn't a social person, but from what I remember he was absolutely harmless", she said.
