It is now being reported by Canadian media:

“Sources told CTV’s Mercedes Stephenson that the suspect is Alek Minassian.”

Online, some people are questioning why American media has reported this before Canadian media did.

When it comes to the issue of motive, Reuters reports that the attack is being investigated as terrorism:

“Terrorism is the leading theory about motive for Toronto van attack, says U.S. security source”

More details as they emerge…
