Canada's Trudeau says security unchanged after Toronto van attack

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Tuesday the deadly van attack in Toronto on Monday had not changed the country’s threat level or security preparations for a G7 summit in Quebec in June, adding that Canadians must not live in fear.

Speaking to reporters outside of parliament, Trudeau said it would take time before the motives of the attacker were understood, but that all Canadians stood with Toronto in the wake of the attack, which killed 10 and injured 15 others.
