 Toronto Life announced that the June 2018 issue features a unique and powerful cover commemorating the victims of the April 23 van attack at Yonge and Finch. Created by Toronto Life's art director, Christine Dewairy, the simple black-and-white image depicts Yonge Street at Finch Avenue covered with 10 hand-painted hearts, marking the 10 lives that were lost in the attack. The hearts also signify the courage and kindness demonstrated by bystanders and first responders that afternoon—and the outpouring of love from Torontonians who rallied around the #torontostrong hashtag in the days that followed.
Inside the issue, there is a collection of first-person stories from people who helped out that day, in big ways and small: a 911 dispatcher, a bystander who performed CPR on victims, Sunnybrook’s surgeon-in-chief who dealt with the influx of trauma patients, a woman who held the hand of a dying victim until paramedics arrived, and more. The issue arrives on newsstands on Thursday, May 17.
“The van attacks were the worst mass killing in recent Canadian history, certainly in Toronto’s history,” says Toronto Life Editor-in-Chief Sarah Fulford. “With our June cover, we wanted to honour the dead but also celebrate the spirit of Torontonians who stepped up to help.”
