ETT would like to express our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the victims and families affected by yesterday’s tragedy along Yonge Street.
This shocking incident has taken 10 lives and left 15 injured and hospitalized, with many other witnesses traumatized.
Throughout this tragedy, Torontonians and Canadians have acted admirably, supporting one another in kindness, resisting division and the politics of fear.

Finally, we would like to recognize and honour Toronto’s first responders and medical professionals for their courage, dedication, and professionalism in face of this harrowing situation.
