Facebook has confirmed that a post published shortly before the attack came from a profile linked to Minassian, and it provides some chilling insight into what may have motivated him to wage such a violent attack. We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys!' just before the attack. "Chad" and "Stacy": Both slang terms have been used online to refer to people with active sex lives.
People gather for a moment of silence at a memorial for victims of the mass killing on Yonge St.at Finch Ave. on April 24, 2018 in Toronto, Canada. Whether for Cops for Cancer or Special Olympics, Lam is always raising funds, Yuen said.
"That one man's actions can not taint an otherwise attractive, welcoming city".
Minassian was charged Tuesday morning with 10 counts of first-degree murder and 13 counts of attempted murder in a Toronto court. "It's a foid! I have one celebratory beer for every victim that turns out to be a young woman between 18-35", they said.

Minassian's neighbours have said they didn't know the family well and that the family members usually kept to themselves.
Last year, a French-Canadian man fatally shot six Muslim men during evening prayers at a mosque in Quebec City. "It is a problem we need to address before more people die".
"There are a lot of first responders that were there that day that looked after a tragic scene".
"I think Toronto is still a very safe city".
Also revisiting the site was Saman Tabasinejad, a New Democrat Party politician who was canvassing in the area when the attack occurred.
Needless to say, if he wasn't held in very high regard by his fellow police officers before, he is now.
"People were holding others and I saw solidarity all over, people trying to help others".
D'Amico worked at Invesco Canada, a US -based investment firm with offices near the scene of the attack, and was remembered by those who knew her as a cheerful, friendly person.
