U of T saddened by 'horrific' van attack: President Meric Gertler

The University of Toronto is offering its condolences to the victims of the devastating van attack near Yonge Street and Finch Avenue that’s being dubbed the country’s worst mass killing in nearly 30 years.
 
U of T President Meric Gertler tweeted Monday evening he was saddened by the “horrific” attack that occurred just hours earlier when a rental van jumped a curb and drove into pedestrians on a busy stretch of Yonge Street, leaving a trail of carnage in its wake and an entire city in shock.
 
So far, 10 people have been declared dead while another 15 were taken to hospital.
 
“The thoughts of the U of T community are with those who have been affected,” President Gertler said. “Our city is resilient & our citizens are compassionate.”
