A photo of Toronto police officer Mark Borsboom tying a sick senior citizen's shoes is restoring faith in humanity in a city that's had a rough couple of weeks.

The post had been retweeted nearly 400 times by late Wednesday afternoon.
The Toronto Police got in on the action, re-posting the picture of Borsboom's good deed on its Twitter page.
Cassidy told the National Post that he first thought Borsboom was searching the man for drugs, but snapped a picture when he realized he was actually witnessing a touching good deed.
“I kind of went, oh my god... I have to share this,” Cassidy said to the Post. "We need positive stories like this that aren’t often in the media.”
