Toronto's First Black Police Chief Resigns Amid Calls to Defund Police
Toronto's first black police chief will step down from his post on 31 July, the Toronto Police Service said in a statement.
"Today, Toronto Police Chief MarkSaunders announced that his last day as Chief of the Toronto Police Service will be 31 July 2020", the Toronto Police Service said on Monday. Saunders' abrupt resignation comes amid growing calls to defund the Toronto police force.
Activists across Canada and the United States have been calling for police departments to be defunded and for the money to be redirected to other areas to help communities, such as education and housing.
Critics have said defunding police departments will leave ordinary citizens defenceless against criminals and predict a drastic rise in crime.
While the calls were spurred by the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Canadian activists have also cited ongoing anti-black and anti-indigenous racism at the hands of police north of the border as well.
However, many of the protests have turned into riots and have seen violence against police and civilians as well as acts of vandalism, arson, and looting.

They mentioned it was not attainable to make out the person's face, the licence plate on the automobile or the kind of automobile. The neighbours have mentioned they believed the person went out and in of the Sherman home however the Sherman personal detective workforce has studied the identical video and it's "inconclusive" as as to if the person enters the home or stood within the alcove resulting in the entrance door, in line with Brian Greenspan, lawyer for the Sherman household.

The Star introduced these two items of data to the Toronto Police final week and requested two questions. First, might the police present details about their investigation of a 911 name from a close-by residence that morning, together with the time of the decision and whether or not police had been sure it got here from the householders' home down the road. Second, the Star requested if it was attainable that the particular person knocking on the Shermans' door was a police officer in an unMarked automobile, who was additionally trying out the 911 name.

Toronto home where Barry, Honey Sherman were killed to be demolished
TORONTO – The City of Toronto has approved a request from the family of Barry and Honey Sherman to demolish the home where billionaire philanthropists were killed.
The family had submitted an application to city authorities last month saying the two-storey mansion where the pharmaceutical magnate and his wife were killed had bad memories and a stigma attached to it.
The letter, written by an unnamed agent on the family's behalf, said the home had stood vacant since the couple's bodies were found dead beside the house pool in December 2017, and no one would buy the residence.
A community council tasked with reviewing the family's request approved it at a meeting Tuesday morning, saying the house can be demolished on condition that construction fences go up around the property if necessary and the lot is cleaned and resodded afterwards.
The family's letter says they intend to put the lot up for sale once the house is gone.
The Shermans' double homicide remains unsolved, and police have not provided any substantial updates on the case in more than a year.
Investigators with Toronto police previously said the Shermans, who were in their 70s, were found in a semi-seated position by the house pool, hanging from a railing with belts around their necks.
Autopsy results revealed the pair died by "ligature neck compression," they said. Police also said there were no signs of forced entry to the home in an affluent corner of north Toronto.
In the months since their deaths, however, lawyers representing the family have alleged the force has conducted a lax investigation that left evidence uncollected and avenues of potential inquiry unexplored.
Brian Greenspan has alleged that police did not vacuum the Shermans' house in the days after they died, failed to properly check points of entry into the mansion, and did not collect sufficient fingerprint and DNA evidence.
Toronto police Chief MarkSaunders has denied the allegations, saying Greenspan and a team of privately hired investigators were not necessarily privy to all the information gathered during the police probe.
Greenspan said he assembled the team at the family's request, including several former Toronto homicide detectives, Ontario's former chief pathologist, and forensic experts.
He said the team has recovered evidence, including 25 finger and palm prints, that they have shared with police as part of their proposal to pursue a joint private-public investigation.
The family has also offered a reward of up to $10 million for information that would solve the couple's killings.
Barry Sherman founded Apotex in 1974 and built it into a generic drug giant with more than $2 billion in annual revenue. He was no longer involved in the company's daily operations at the time of his death.
Honey Sherman was a member of the board of the Baycrest Foundation and the York University Foundation. She also served on the boards of Mount Sinai's Women's Auxiliary, the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the International American Joint Distribution Committee.

Officials: no risk to national security in Toronto rampage
TORONTO (AP) - Canadian investigators said Tuesday there was no national security risk following the mass shooting that killed two people and wounded 13, as they continued to probe the life of the 29-year-old gunman for clues to what prompted the deadly rampage in a popular Toronto neighborhood.
The assailant, Faisal Hussain, died after an exchange of gunfire with police. His family has said he suffered from lifelong "severe mental health challenges" but they never imagined he would do such a thing. It was not immediately clear whether he took his own life or was killed by police during the attack Sunday night.
"At this stage, based on the state of the investigation, which is led by the Toronto police service, there is no connection between that individual and national security," Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said.
The mass shooting in Toronto's Greektown neighborhood stunned people in a normally safe city, already unsettled by an attack just three months ago when a man used a van to plow over pedestrians on a downtown sidewalk, killing 10 people and injuring 14 in an attack apparently aimed at women.
Hussain's family issued a statement saying their son had a long history of psychosis and depression and had not responded to numerous treatment approaches, including therapy and medication.
Toronto's police chief says a 10 year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman were killed in the mass shooting in the city's Greektown neighborhood. Police chief MarkSaunders said 13 other victims have injuries ranging from minor to serious. (July 23)
"While we did our best to seek help for him throughout his life of struggle and pain, we could never imagine that this would be his devastating and destructive end," the family said. "Our hearts are in pieces for the victims and for our city as we all come to grips with this terrible tragedy. We will mourn those who were lost for the rest of our lives."
Investigators searched the low-income apartment that Hussain shared with his parents and siblings on Thorncliffe Park Drive in the eastern part of the city, and removed boxes of potential evidence overnight. An autopsy on Hussain was expected Tuesday.

Toronto Resident Faisal Hussain Identified as Suspect in Danforth Mass Shooting
Canadian police identified Faisal Hussain of Toronto on Monday as the person responsible for the Sunday shooting in the Danforth area of the city.
According to the National Post, Ontario's Special Investigations Unit revealed that 29-year-old Hussain was found dead on the scene from an apparent gunshot wound following an exchange of fire with police. It's unclear if the fatal shot came from police. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
Although officials have yet to determine a motive for the crime, they have not ruled out terrorism. "We do not know why this happened yet," Toronto Police Chief MarkSaunders told reporters. "The investigation itself is very fluid, it is very new, it's going to take some time."
Local police were first alerted to the shooting at roughly 10:00 p.m. local time in Toronto's Greektown neighborhood. Two people, an 18-year-old aspiring nurse and a 10-year-old girl, were killed, and 13 others were injured.
AP reports that Hussain's family said he suffered from serious mental problems, but they never expected him to become violent.

The attack took place in Toronto's Greektown neighborhood on Sunday night, when a man dressed in black opened fire, killing two people and injuring 13 more. One of the fatalities was identified as Reese Fallon, 18, a recent high school graduate. The other one was a 10-year-old girl who was not named.
Police reported they had engaged in a firefight with the perpetrator and that he was deceased, although they did not specify whether the officers killed him or he took his own life. Initially, they only reported the suspect's age, withholding the name pending an investigation.
Shortly after the authorities named Hussain, his family released a statement expressing condolences to the families of the victims and the horror they felt after learning of his actions.
"Our son had severe mental health challenges, struggling with psychosis and depression his entire life," the statement said. "Medications and therapy were unable to treat him. While we did our best to seek help for him throughout his life of struggle and pain, we could never imagine that this would be his devastating and destructive end."

The police would not immediately identify the motive behind the shooting.
"We do not know why this happened," Toronto Police Chief MarkSaunders told reporters on Monday. "It's way too early to rule out anything."
Reacting to the attack, Toronto Mayor John Tory argued that the city has a gun problem.
"Why does anyone in this city need to have a gun at all?" he asked city councilors on Monday morning.
Despite relatively restrictive firearms ownership laws, Canadian authorities do not require a medical opinion before someone that is diagnosed with a mental illness is issued a license. Toronto has seen 23 gun-related homicides so far this year, compared to 16 in the first half of 2017.
