Online post suggests Toronto van attack suspect may have resented women

Emergency responders are on scene after a white van reportedly struck pedestrians along Yonge Street near Finch Avenue in Toronto

A mourner visits a makeshift memorial April 24, one day after a van struck multiple people along a major street in Toronto.

The man suspected of killing at least 10 people on Monday by plowing a rented white van down crowded Toronto sidewalks appeared in court Tuesday morning and has been charged with 10 counts of murder and 13 counts of attempted murder. Fourteen others were injured.

But a senior national government official said earlier that authorities had not turned over the investigation to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, a sign that investigators believed it unlikely terrorism was the motive.

- Toronto authorities said they had no previous interactions with him, but a United States law enforcement official said Minassian had been known to authorities.

A LinkedIn page with Minassian's name and photograph lists him as a student at Seneca College from 2011 to this year.

Elwood Delaney of Kamloops, B.C., described his grandmother as an avid sports fan who "almost had as much love for the Blue Jays and Leafs as she did for her family".

The South Korean embassy in Canada confirmed to the BBC that two of its citizens were among the dead and another was critically ill.

Saunders identified the man detained after the incident as Alek Minassian, 25, a resident of the Toronto suburb of Richmond Hill.

Former Toronto homicide detective Michael Davis, who heads security agency Michael A. Davis Investigations, praised the officer's response and said he had to have felt he was in control and confident that he could handle any of the suspect's moves.

Rodger killed six people and injured 14 others in a stabbing, shooting and vehicle-ramming attack in 2014 near the University of California, Santa Barbara campus. We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys!

Ford makes sharp cuts to USA sedan portfolio
The company will no longer make the Fusion, Taurus, CMax hybrid compact and Fiesta subcompact in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. That is on top of about $14 billion in efficiencies the company had already promised to achieve in the next several years.

The term "incel" refers to a now-banned group on the message site Reddit, used by Rodger, where young men discussed their lack of sexual activity and attractiveness to women - often blaming women for the problem. Like-minded people in internet forums sometimes use "Chad" and "Stacy" as dismissive slang for men and women with more robust sex lives.

Minassian spent a brief and undistinguished two months in 2017 as a member of the Canadian Armed Forces before dropping out. The judge ordered him detained without bond and scheduled the next hearing for May 10.

The incident occurred as Cabinet ministers from the major industrial countries were gathered in Canada to discuss a range of global issues in the run-up to the G7 meeting near Quebec City in June. "We need every single piece of this puzzle so we can have a fulsome picture and account as to exactly what took place here".

It is not yet clear why the van jumped the curb, or whether it was an intentional attack.

Although police say Monday's rampage does not appear linked to global terrorism, the use of a vehicle to kill mirrored tactics used by terrorists in France, Germany, Spain, New York City and elsewhere. "Anybody in his way he would hit".

One witness told City News that the driver was "hitting anything that comes in the way".

"If it was an accident he would have stopped", Kang said. "Go Toronto Go. Love you Nan", the post said in part.

The Monday afternoon rampage "occurred in a very busy pedestrian area and it occurred over significant distance", he said in a news conference Tuesday.

Later in the video, the man is on the ground as the officer cuffs his hands behind him.

Police in that case said Rodger's motivation was likely his involvement in the men's activist movement, comprised of people who think women do not actually want gender equality but have been brainwashed by society and propaganda.
