 A 47-year-old man is to appear in a Toronto courtroom today accused of stabbing four co-workers.
    
Police say a man in the process of being fired from a multinational human resources company in north-end Toronto went on a stabbing spree early yesterday.
    
Investigators say the victims were stabbed with a ``sharp instrument'' -- possibly a knife -- before he was subdued by those around him and held for police.
    
A 32-year-old woman and three men between the ages of 35 and 45 were taken to hospital.
    
Police say one of the men has been released from hospital but the woman's injuries are described as life-threatening.
    
Chuang Li of Mississauga, Ontario is charged with three counts of attempted murder, four counts of aggravated assault and four counts of assault with a weapon.
    
Li was not injured in the incident.

    I suspect his employer now regrets 'cutting' him loose.

    I think Chuang Li took it too literally when he was told to take a 'stab' at the job market.

    Not funny. People that go nuts need the death penalty. Why only 3 counts of attempted murder? Only because other people subdued him. How many victims if he had been left loose? 20? His intention was likely toe xterminate the entire staff. So penalties should reflect his intent and not be reduced due to the bravery of others.

      @Bill R ...no its not funny. But dark humor isn't necessarily out of the question.
      We should be thankful he only had a knife (or sharp object) instead of a gun. It could have been a lot worse.
      And from the reports I've heard, his main target was after management- which was probably 1 or 2 people.

    Maybe the employer could play this off as a belated April Fool's prank "Fired? Nooo..."; that went terribly wrong.
