Woman says neighbour among Toronto van attack victims — NewsAlert

Woman says neighbour among Toronto van attack victims — NewsAlert

Ten people were killed after a van mounted a sidewalk along a busy street in north Toronto on Monday, ramming into pedestrians in its path.

Hospital officials said 12 of the 14 injured remain hospitalized.

A shaven-headed Minassian appeared in court early Tuesday to hear the charges against him - 10 counts of premeditated murder and 13 of attempted murder.

"I saw bodies and now there are names and faces to them", she said.

"We think that Canada was a peaceful country, (but) that is a doubt we have if people do these kinds of things", Ahangama Rathanasiri of the Toronto Maha Vihara Buddhist Meditation Centre said in a telephone interview.

"(She was) the best grandmother anyone could have asked for", Delaney told The Canadian Press.

Over the years, the young woman rose through the ranks and was eventually assigned to helping the elite athletes competing in the annual event, largely because of her patience and friendliness, he said.

The Toronto District School Board said she had worked as a nutrition services staff member for the board since 2015. "This is a hard time for the students and staff that knew her and we will continue to provide support to them in the days and weeks ahead". The classmate, who didn't want to be identified, said they bonded during special-needs classes at Windham Ridge Public School and Thornlea Secondary School. Friends are now caring for Amarasingha's son, he added.

The Jordanian embassy in Ottawa confirmed one of its citizens had died but did not provide further details.

"They are secluded right now and they ask everybody to accept their privacy", he said.

Investigators are still trying to determine the motive behind the attack, which left 10 people dead and 14 hurt.

"Everybody knew Betty because she used to walk in the morning to feed the animals", Hunt said.

BJD not in favour of impeachment motion against CJI
After a 40-minute-long meeting with Naidu, opposition leaders said they expected positive action from the Rajya Sabha chairman. If they find him guilty, then the House of Parliament which initiated the motion may consider continuing with the motion.

"It was clear that part of his life is gone", said Coun.

"I felt it's my duty to come over and pay tribute", he said.

Sewell's death was confirmed by her grandson, Elwood Delaney, of Kamloops, B.C.

Between herself, her brother, her parents and her grandmother, her family have more than 80 years of service in.

Jordanian national Munir Abdo Habib al-Najar, who was in Canada visiting one of his children, also died in the attack, the Jordanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

"Anne-Marie lived for working at Rogers Cup and seeing her fellow volunteers each summer", Tennis Canada Vice President Gavin Ziv said.

Seneca College said another one of the victims was a female student, but didn't offer further details.

- Minassian also had severe anxiety when interacting with females and would freeze, unable to respond, the classmate said. "The one ... positive to take-away from that day was his behaviour".

Trudeau wouldn't say whether he would attend a weekend memorial for the victims, but does plan to visit once he feels he would not distract from the investigation.

In the post, Minassian praised mass killer Elliot Rodger - a 22-year-old American who murdered six people and then killed himself in California in 2014, and who had professed frustration over his virginity and women rejecting him. The post also references involuntary celibacy, colloquially referred to as "incel".

Investigators found a Facebook account they believe belongs to Minassian, CNN law enforcement analyst Josh Campbell said.
