A Tribute And Thank You To Toronto’s First Responders: #TorontoTheGood

In the wake of yesterday’s heinous tragedy at Yonge St. and Finch Ave., #TorontotheGood is trending on Twitter.

Its aim is to deliver messages of hope, gratitude, and kindness.

So far we know 10 people have been killed and 15 more injured, after a rental van plowed through a group of pedestrians.

Our hearts are with the victims, families, loved ones and all of those who have been impacted by this devastation.

Now, we would like to take a moment to thank all of the first responders.

Thank you to the hospital staff at Sunnybrook Hospital who treated 10 of the victims. Thank you to everyone who was on the scene to help. Thank you to everyone who has helped in the aftermath.

Thank you to the arresting officer who captured the suspect near Yonge St. and Sheppard Ave. No shots were even fired.

We have collected some of the ways people are thanking the calm, courageous, and dedicated actions of our city and first responders. It’s been dark. But our solidarity is the light.

Hero.

Thank you.

Merci.

Bravery.

Remarkable.

Pride.

Solidarity.

Incredible.

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.
