Toronto, Canada, World Come Together And Pay Tribute To Victims Of Deadly Van Attack

Since the devastating tragedy at Yonge St. and Finch Ave. Monday afternoon, tributes have been pouring in for the victims, families, first responders and for Toronto as a community.

At the time of publishing this post, 10 people have been killed and 15 more injured. This after a rental van plowed through a group of pedestrians.

#TorontoStrong has introduced a fleury of posts in the wake of sadness, disbelief, heartache — and solidarity.

A live eye at Yonge and Finch as passersby leave messages on a memorial …

This is one of the most shared posts, for obvious reasons …

From small notes to big posters, the messages weigh heavy.

Torontonians define Toronto.

#Compassion

This horrible tragedy brought people together in the most unlikely and beautiful ways …

A dark night.

#TorontoStrong

Of course our fiercest competitors are also our strongest supporters.

A very Canadian moment as the Leafs paid tribute …

Want to help?

Sunnybrook Hospital so far has treated 10 of the victims. It has made a call for blood donations since it has the Toronto regional outpost of the Canadian Blood Services. To donate, you can visit blood.ca to find the nearest clinic.

Also, a community-focused outreach group, Canada Zakat, has set up a GoFundMe account for victims of the attack. The funds raised will help pay the funeral expenses for the families of the victims.
