Toronto Van Attack

Postby deja vu on Mon Apr 23, 2018 9:47 pm

Ten people are dead and 15 others are injured after a van driver plowed into a number of pedestrians Monday in the Yonge Street and Finch Avenue area of North York in Toronto.

One suspect is in custody. CBC News has confirmed that Alek Minassian, a 25-year-old Richmond Hill, Ont., man, is the alleged driver in the attack. His LinkedIn profile identifies him
as a student at Seneca College.

Still early in the investigation, but no one seems to think it was a terror attack, more a case of mental illness or being rejected by women. Sadly this is not the first time hating women
has been used as a reason to kill. It happened in Montreal, Quebec, December 6, 1989. Fourteen women killed in school just because they were women.

Some updates on the tragedy:

The majority of the victims in Monday’s deadly Yonge St. rampage are female, but there is no evidence that the driver was expressly aiming the vehicle at women,
the lead homicide investigator on the case told reporters.

Toronto police Det.-Sgt. Graham Gibson also said investigators are looking into a “cryptic” Facebook message the accused killer allegedly posted just before he “deliberately” struck
pedestrians in on Yonge — but stressed the investigation is in its early stages.

“There was no elitism visible when Torontonians pulled people out of the way of the killer van and left their safe buildings to
race down onto the street to help,” writes Heather Mallick. “Total strangers stayed with the bodies to make sure no one died alone.”

Brad Done watched carefully as a machinist drilled a hole into a bright yellow metal tube about a metre long and 10 centimetres across at his Surrey, B.C., business, Reliance Foundry.

The pole is called a bollard, designed to be set into the ground to keep vehicles away from people and buildings. The demand for this product is so strong it's become the main focus of
his business, which once forged metal into tools and other products for B.C. industries.

Multi purpose and it will save lives. There is no IF, it is a must do and waste, no time installing them.

Fantastic idea.
