The dog that saved Toronto

The original articles that I read were much better than this one, but I can't quite remember which paper they were from, and this is the only one I could find online. Basically, some man was going to go on a shooting spree in Toronto, and changed his mind after being greeted by this dog. Read the story here:

I saw this story on the news. The man is apparently from the Maritimes, and was so disallusioned with society that he decided to go on a killing spree. He chose Toronto because he didn't want to risk knowing any of his victims personally. From what I heard, he changed his mind because, after meeting this friendly dog, he decided that the people in Toronto couldn't be all bad! Yay, Dante!!!
