Sym­pa­thy for slain UB stu­dent’s fam­ily

Baltimore Sun - - WORLD - Mary Vin­cent, On­tario, Canada

As a Cana­dian and a mother of three sons, I am send­ing my heart­felt sym­pa­thy to the fam­ily of the young man who was bru­tally mur­dered on the streets of Toronto (“Fam­ily in shock af­ter Uni­ver­sity of Bal­ti­more stu­dent, re­mem­bered as ’peace­maker,’ killed in Toronto at­tack,” Nov. 7). The Toronto po­lice say he was do­ing noth­ing wrong when he was at­tacked, and that makes me feel ill. It is true, Toronto is hav­ing more crime than it used to, and we need more po­lice pres­ence around clubs. We have more guns now be­cause they are com­ing across the bor­der — but this wasn’t caused by guns. This was young thugs who will even­tu­ally be caught (“Two ar­rested in fa­tal at­tack on Uni­ver­sity of Bal­ti­more stu­dent in Toronto,” Nov. 10). I, and oth­ers I have spo­ken to, are dis­tressed that th­ese young men come to Canada to cel­e­brate, and one is beaten to death. We are so sorry, we apol­o­gize for this out­rage. God bless.
