TORONTO — Premier Doug Ford refused to say Tuesday if he believes racism is a systemic problem in Ontario. Liberal MPP Michael Coteau raised the question at the legislature, noting that Ford declined to answer the same question shortly after he took office in 2018. “I’ll ask you again: Do you believe that systemic racism and anti-Black racism is real? And if so, what are you going to do … to combat these forms of racism?” Coteau asked. “Please have the decency, premier, to answer this question. You owe it to so many people.”
