On the show this week, we’re grappling with the horrific van attack that took place in our city on April 23rd, in which a man mowed down pedestrians on a North York sidewalk, killing ten and injuring 16 others.

CJRU's Mick Sweetman talks with Toronto reporter Arshy Mann about the toxic misogynistic online culture that may have spurred the attack.

We also talk to North York’s women’s shelter about how women are affected everyday by violence.

And we hear how Torontonians are healing in the wake of the tragedy.
