The man convicted in the deaths of 11 people has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance for parole for 25 years.
The sentence came after victim impact statements were read in the courtroom on Monday, as family members and friends of the victims gathered in-person to speak of their loss in Toronto’s infamous van attack of 2018.
Alek Minassian was found guilty last year of 10 counts of first-degree murder and 16 counts of attempted murder. One of the victims injured in the attack died last November following Minassian’s conviction.
Catherine McDonald reports on the emotions inside and outside the courtroom, and the legal implications of verdict.
