No, not exaggeration. 10 fatalities so far.

The word is it wasn't a national security incident, just a lone nutter losing the plot and making some dreadful decisions that resulted in lives and families ruined. In other words Toronto is just like many other places in the world, except in this case an unrelated group is not given the chance to claim it was part of their grand plan.

The city's fairly sombre at the moment but the response from the emergency workers, the community and I have to say a certain policeman in particular was pretty amazing.

These things are never good, but the silver lining here is that I woke up in a city where everyone is being really, really nice to each other this morning. A strong wind of perspective has blown out the dusty corners.
cheers
Chris Maunder
