Mark Ernsting, 39, died after he was attacked near 38 McGill St., just east of Yonge Street and close to Ryerson University, around 9:30 p.m. ET.

Police say he was stabbed multiple times, including at least once in the head.

“There was no previous relationship between the accused and the deceased,” Det. Paul Worden told CBC News. “The deceased was just out for his normal evening walk and happened to come across the accused and he was attacked.”

CBC News has confirmed that Ernsting worked for the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.

He was also an adjunct professor at Ryerson University where he worked with graduate students in the electrical and computer engineering department.

About an hour after the attack, police arrested Calvin Michael Nimoh, 21, near Yonge Street and Summerhill Avenue. He is charged with second-degree murder and appeared in court on Wednesday.

Investigators believe Nimoh, who is known to police, may have tried to rob Ernsting.

Police released this photo Dec. 12 of Joel Alexander, 28, who identified as the victim in Dec. 11’s fatal shooting on Peter St. in Toronto.

A man who died in hospital following a daylight drive-by shooting in the Entertainment District on Friday has been identified as 28-year-old Joel Alexander.

At a press conference near the crime scene on Saturday, Det.-Sgt. Terry Browne said that Alexander was a resident of Toronto and the father of a five-year-old child. He said that Alexander was “known to” the police and “did have his difficulties in the past,” but he wouldn’t elaborate.

Police believe Alexander was killed just after 4 p.m. Friday when at least 10 shots were fired from a silver car toward a parked car outside 80 Peter St. near King St. The silver car fled the scene, and Alexander was rushed to a trauma centre where he died from his injuries.

On Saturday afternoon, thick smears of blood were still visible on the sidewalk outside the parking lot on Adelaide St.

A female passenger in the vehicle with Alexander managed to escape unharmed. Browne said that she was assisting police in their investigation but was in “a great state of shock” and “extremely emotionally scarred.”

Unlicensed Richmond immigration consultant Xun “Sunny” Wang let hundreds into Canada illegally

Unlicensed Richmond immigration consultant let hundreds into Canada illegally: Crown

DAN FUMANO / RICHMOND NEWS

CBSA immigration fraud

Chinese passports were seized by Canadian Border Services Agency after a “significant” fraud scheme was uncovered earlier this year

‘Many, many hundreds” of immigrants obtained Canadian citizenship or permanent residence with the help of an unlicensed immigration consultant in Richmond who made millions altering passports, a court was told Wednesday.

Xun “Sunny” Wang appeared at a sentencing hearing in provincial court in Vancouver after pleading guilty to eight charges in connection with his immigration businesses.

Federal Crown counsel Bruce Harper said “definitely many, many hundreds” and possibly “well over 1,000” of Wang’s clients obtained Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status through Wang’s fraudulent businesses.

“There are certainly a great number of individuals whose status in Canada, whether permanent residence or citizenship, is now in question,” Harper said.

Wang’s businesses served more than 1,000 customers between 2006 and 2013, charging more than $10 million for services, court heard.

Along with six counts under the Criminal Code and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, Wang has pleaded guilty to two counts under the Income Tax Act, including failing to report $2,722,305 of taxable income from 2007 to 2012.

And, despite the millions earned by his companies, court heard, Wang also claimed several thousand dollars of low-income tax benefits between 2008 and 2013, which Harper compared to robbing a bank, and then stealing the charitable donation can on the way out.

“It adds insult to injury,” Harper said.

Crown is seeking a sentence of seven and a half years.
