What is an incel? The term used by Toronto attack suspect explained

Other students characterized as people unsociable.

The term, "incel" is short for "involuntary celibate", an online community of men who say they're not having sex because of women.

The deputy police chief said Lam was unable to speak to the media, as he would be required to attend court and anything he could say to the media could be used as evidence.

Continues to publish the names of those killed as a result of collision of the van for people in Toronto, driven by 25-year-old Alex Minassian. Another attempted murder charge may be added.

A vigil is scheduled for Sunday night at Mel Lastman Square to remember the victims of the deadly van attack on Yonge Street in Toronto.

Wendy Cukier, a professor of justice studies at Toronto's Ryerson University and president of Canada's Coalition for Gun Control, said Canada may avoid some types of violence because its social programs are stronger than those in many USA states and it has less income inequality.

Renuka Amarasinghe, 48, a single mom who immigrated here from Sri Lanka, had just finished her first day at Earl Haig Secondary School where she'd started work in nutrition services.

McCormack said while additional training is a factor, he knows Lam well enough to say his personality factored in. "So from that information we then reach out to family members and we have done that." he said. - He reacted to what he saw as he was taught, and we are very proud of them.

Rathanasiri said Amarasingha's friends first became alarmed when she did not return home on Monday afternoon to look after her son as usual.

Facebook has since taken down the suspected attacker's profile.

"Right now he's still asking me, asking his colleagues, 'Did I make the right decision?" "We stand together, we want to help the family heal. physically, psychologically, emotionally and financially, they need all the help they can get".

As of April 25, confirmed the death of ten people.

Federico said what the public saw in the video was something officers are trained to do, which is switch from a deadly weapon to a less unsafe option - the baton - as the officer determines there is a lower threat. For crying out loud, how do we live in a world where that even needs to be said?

"I will miss her", the 84-year-old said of Forsyth, who had been her neighbour for more than 10 years.

Tennis Canada said the victims also included long-time volunteer Anne Marie D'Amico.

Anne was an employee at Invesco, a US -based investment management firm.

"She was a really friendly, warm person. always caring for other people ahead of herself", said Gavin Ziv, vice-president of national events for Tennis Canada. One man killed was a Jordanian man, Munir Abdu Habib Al-Najjar, according to Jordanian media reports.

In total, among victims two citizens of South Korea.

Although police continued to comb the one-kilometre stretch of road where the attack took place, the area had largely reopened to the public on Wednesday.

Local residents created an impromptu memorial site shortly after the attack, lighting candles, laying flowers, and writing tributes to the victims of the carnage.

Minassian has praised the incel movement in the past online, and in a post, showed his support for Elliot Rodgers, who shot six people dead and wounded 13 others in California in 2014 in support of the movement.

Self-described incels congregate mostly online, meeting in forums and message boards like Reddit and 4chan, and its offshoot site 8chan, to discuss their hopelessness with women in posts that are peppered with racist and misogynistic rants.

Facebook has since deleted Missanian's account.
