TORONTO, Ont. – Around 40-50 people attended a vigil on Sunday for all the victims and people affected by the shooting at Toronto’s Eaton Centre.

The vigil took place just after 6 p.m. outside the mall at Yonge-Dundas Square.

Planning for the vigil was started on Facebook by a young woman named Karen.

On the Facebook wall many Torontonians expressed their disgust with the shooting and circumstances, summed up by the expression, “This is not Toronto.”

The young woman Karen spoke to 680News, and reiterated why she started the vigil event.

“Especially after the Jane Creba shooting, and there was recently a shooting near my house at the Scarborough Town Centre, I was very tired of feeling like there was nothing I could do to help alleviate this confusion, and sense of senseless violence in places that are really close to me,” Karen said.

“Seeing this happen and sort of feeling helpless, an idea popped into my head and I said it out loud on Twitter,” Karen said. “I started up a Facebook page and didn’t expect much to happen. I’ve gotten a lot of support online from people.”

The following message is posted on Facebook:

“On June 2, a horrible event happened in Toronto. Someone went into one of the city’s favourite places, and decided to open fire. They killed one person, injured a few more, and the resulting chaos resulted in two more injured.

This is not Toronto.

Toronto is a place where people care about each other. Where people come together despite their differences, share their cultures and build lives.

I firmly believe the city is safe, wonderful place. Events like this are the exception, not the norm.

Please join me in meeting at Yonge-Dundas Square on Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 6pm and showing everyone that we are more than this event.”
