In the days following the devastating attack, the city was left grappling with the task of enhancing security to keep its citizens and visitors safe.
Now, a year has passed since the deadly rampage, and a number of steps have been taken to bolster security across the city.
Hours after the attack, concrete barriers were put up around Toronto’s Union Station to boost security around the high-traffic area.
According to Toronto Police 52 Division Unit Commander Michael Barsky, a vehicle mitigation strategy had also been put into place in the downtown core prior to the attack, focusing on areas of the city where large crowds gather.
