  • Messages of hope and grief are left at a vigil in Toronto Canada

Cheryl Mahyr says officials will name the deceased in a news conference at 3 p.m.

If indeed, as authorities appear to agree, the rampage was deliberate and the driver meant to kill as many people as possible, the lovely spring weather had brought out many who last week would have stayed indoors.

"[The families] have suffered a bad and unspeakable tragedy that is unimaginable to everybody", said Huyer.

A photograph of Anne Marie D'Amico, a victim of the van attack, is displayed at a vigil on April 24 in Toronto.

Mary Elizabeth (Betty) Forsyth, 94, of Toronto.

Chul Min "Eddie" Kang was an employee at a Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouses restaurant in Toronto whose death was confirmed by the company.

Dorothy Sewell, 80, of Toronto.

But other sources have identified some of the dead.

The leader of Toronto's homicide squad, Insp. Graham Gibson, previously explained this is also true for those injured.

Worldwide visitors to Toronto were also among the victims. The Jordanian Embassy told CBC News he was also a grandfather. The 22-year-old was born and raised in Canada to a Korean family and worked in sales at luxury retailer Holt Renfrew.

Another visitor to the memorial, Nil Adjei said he used to live in the area years ago and was drawn to the site after the attack.

In mere minutes, the van traveled at speeds estimated to be between 60 and 70 km/h, killing at least 10 pedestrians and seriously injuring another 15, while mowing down everything else in its path and at one point crossing into the northbound lanes before somehow coming to rest on a side street.

Minassian has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 of attempted murder but has not yet entered a plea.

Sainsbury's, Walmart's Asda to create United Kingdom supermarket powerhouse
In April 2016, they announced a £1.4 billion takeover of Argos, which led to better than expected results the following Christmas. Merger talks between British supermarket chains Sainsbury's and Asda are at an "advanced" stage, Sainsbury's has confirmed.

Minassian's family hasn't commented on him or the murder and attempted murder charges against him. Of the 16 people he injured, 12 are still in Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital.

Alek Minassian, 25, was arrested on Monday near the scene of the rampage. The police said they meant to lodge additional charges of attempted murder against Mr. Minassian based on interviews they have conducted. Bryan Bott in a Friday afternoon news conference. Police have interviewed close to 200 witnesses and sorted through dozens of photos and video evidence submitted by the public.

Police gather after the driver of a van deliberately ran down multiple pedestrians.

Bott said 25 of the victims were on various sidewalks, while one was on a roadway. All but one of the 26 victims were hit there, he added.

The driver of the van started moving southbound on Yonge Street near Hendon Avenue, a block away from Finch Avenue.

A fund collecting money for victims and families in the wake of the attack surpassed the $1.2 million mark Friday.

The city said contributions to the Toronto Strong Fund are made up of personal and corporate donations.

"There's a lot of people asking, what can they do?"

Tory described the moment on Monday afternoon when he began to grasp what had happened. You look at this stuff and go: 'Really? "And then I felt sick, I really did".

Six different faith leaders will speak, and "choirs from all over the city" will perform, Gilmore said.

His father, Vahe Minassian, looking distraught, said only "I'm sorry" as he left a courthouse Tuesday. "So even if you have no actual intent to do that, someone who does is going to see those posts and think they're not alone", said Poland, a doctoral student in rhetoric at Bowling Green State University.

On Metro Morning, Tory said it's all evidence of the "strength of Toronto".
