Since the devastating tragedy at Yonge St. and Finch Ave. Monday afternoon, tributes have been pouring in for the victims, families, first responders and for Toronto as a community.

At the time of publishing this post, 10 people have been killed and 15 more injured. This after a rental van plowed through a group of pedestrians.

#TorontoStrong has introduced a fleury of posts in the wake of sadness, disbelief, heartache — and solidarity.

A live eye at Yonge and Finch as passersby leave messages on a memorial …

This is one of the most shared posts, for obvious reasons …

From small notes to big posters, the messages weigh heavy.

Torontonians define Toronto.

#Compassion

This horrible tragedy brought people together in the most unlikely and beautiful ways …

A dark night.

#TorontoStrong

Of course our fiercest competitors are also our strongest supporters.

A very Canadian moment as the Leafs paid tribute …

Want to help?

Sunnybrook Hospital so far has treated 10 of the victims. It has made a call for blood donations since it has the Toronto regional outpost of the Canadian Blood Services. To donate, you can visit blood.ca to find the nearest clinic.

Also, a community-focused outreach group, Canada Zakat, has set up a GoFundMe account for victims of the attack. The funds raised will help pay the funeral expenses for the families of the victims.
