A truck crash in the north end of Toronto hit many pedestrians on the sidewalk, killing as many as ten. The driver is reportedly in custody, and they're having a press conference:
Earl Haig Secondary School, located at 100 Princess Avenue North, Deputy Chief Peter Yuen and Mayor John Tory will update the media on the incident involving multiple pedestrians at Yonge & Finch at 4:30. ^gl— Toronto Police OPS (@TPSOperations) April 23, 2018
Normally, when the police announce they have a suspect, but they can't announce the name, yet, no one in the MSM yells out the obvious question—"Is this a Midddle East guy?" Faith Goldy is on the scene, however, so if we don't get answer, we may at least get a question.
Update: She did ask—she was the only one—and got no comment:
