Toronto's Black residents received an apology from the city's interim police chief today as the force released previously unseen race-based data on use of force.
Toronto's interim police chief has apologized to the city's Black community as the force releases previously unseen race-based data on its use of force and strip searches. James Ramer says the force has not done enough to ensure everyone receives fair and unbiased treatment.
The apology was swiftly rejected by some, including one activist who noted that Black people have called for years for police to stop treating them unfairly.
Beverly Bain, a spokesperson with the No Pride in Policing Coalition, says the apology was a publicity stunt.
Newly released statistics show Black people faced a disproportionate amount of police enforcement and were more likely to have an officer point a gun at them than white people in the same situation.
