A vigil is scheduled for Sunday night at Mel Lastman Square to remember the victims of the deadly van attack on Yonge Street in Toronto.
A spokesperson for the mayor’s office said the vigil will take place at 7 p.m. on April 29 and members of the public are encouraged to attend to show their support.
Ten people were killed and 14 others were injured after a rental van plowed through crowds of pedestrians on Yonge Street between Finch Avenue and Sheppard Avenue Monday afternoon.
Alek Minassian, 25, was arrested and charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 of attempted murder. Toronto police said a 14th charge of attempted murder is expected to be laid in the coming days.
