Software developer drove a rented van through the North York City Centre business district, deliberately targeting pedestrians, killing 10 and injuring (some critically)16 more. He tried to provoke an officer into killing him (commit suicide-by-cop), but this was Canada. His reasoning was he was Incel (involuntary celibate) and envious of men for getting sex when he couldn't, and mad at Women for not putting out.
