Terror charges so soon after London attack would be unprecedented: experts

  Terror charges so soon after London attack would be unprecedented: experts The killing of four members of a Muslim family in London, Ont., on Sunday has been denounced as an act of terrorism by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, but it's possible the terrorism label will never be reflected in the charges faced by the accused. Legal experts say it's probably too early for terror charges to be laid because investigators need sufficient evidence of motive. But the experts also expressed concern that prosecutors in Canada usually reserve terror charges for people with Islamist extremist views, which they say sends the message the law isn't being applied equally.

The Toronto Police Service is investigating an aggravated assault that took place on Toronto Island.

Toronto police are investigating the assault near Hanlan ’ s Point as an aggravated assault. They say a 24-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were walking to the ferry docks when they became involved in a disagreement with a group. On Wednesday, police spokesperson Caroline de Kloet said she cannot confirm whether he was a suspect, only saying the case remains an active investigation. “We would not speculate on those alleged to be involved, or not involved, until charges have been laid and investigators have established the full facts with evidence to support it,” de Kloet said.

That's when, police say, a man from that second group of people made homophobic comments toward the victims.

A woman from the second group grabbed one of the pair, police say. Then, two men from the group punched and kicked the man, leaving him with "significant injuries."

David Gomez, also 24, later identified himself as the victim when contacted by CBC News.

In the days after the assault was reported, social media posts alleged that a member of the CFL's Ottawa Redblacks was one of the people involved in the attack.

The Redblacks subsequently announced that defensive lineman Chris Larsen had been suspended from the team, pending an ongoing investigation.

His lawyer, Calvin Barry, said Larsen is no longer a suspect.

Barry has said he hopes the CFL lifts Larsen's suspension shortly because of the misinformation and allows him to return to his life and career.

  What we know about the accused in the fatal attack on a Muslim family in London, Ont. The man facing murder charges after a truck jumped a London, Ont., curb and ran into a Muslim family of five, killing four of them, has left no traces on social media about his life. But a neighbour who spoke to CBC News said while the 20-year-old tended to keep to himself, he'd have frequent visitors at his apartment and there was constant noise.   "Just banging in general and banging on the walls to the point my pictures are moving. If not that, loud music, video games — it was just intense." Neighbour shocked to hear of arrest She said she was shocked to learn of the charges Veltman now faces.

An off-duty Toronto police officer has been convicted of assault after blinding a black man in an attack with a metal pipe four years ago. Dafonte Miller, 19, was chased and attacked by officer Michael Theriault and his brother Christian. The victim, whose injuries were so severe his left eye had to be removed, said the officer should have been convicted of a more serious charge . On Friday, Michael Theriault was convicted of assault, a lesser offence than his initial charge of aggravated assault.

Toronto police say they have laid an additional charge Friday on a man involved in a missing woman investigation which was deemed a homicide. Police originally put out a report for missing 33-year-old mother of three Amanda Killeen on Monday. The police release had stated Killeen was last seen on Feb. There was an interaction between officers and a man in a third-floor apartment unit. The man was shot by police and was taken to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) said.

The Redblacks said on Saturday that the team has no update to provide at this time.

'This remains an active investigation,' police say

In a news release on Saturday, police said investigators have been working to identify those involved in the incident.

"I want to make it clear that while we have successfully charged someone for their alleged involvement in this assault, our investigation does not stop here," said Det.-Const. Lauren Hassard from 52 Division.

"This is a complex case and we still encourage witnesses to come forward. In particular, we want to speak to two women who we believe were in the area at the time and are described as white, in their 20s and with brown hair. This remains an active investigation."

Police are asking anyone with information to call 416-808-5200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
