Ontario Premier Doug Ford's view that Canada doesn't have the same "systemic, deep roots" of racism that the United States does drew strong criticism Wednesday from a Toronto journalist and writer.

Ford, whose family's label business operates in the U.S., said Tuesday that comparing Canada and the U.S. on racial issues is like "night and day," and he hopes the U.S. can straighten out its problems.

Kathleen Newman-Bremang called the comments "ridiculous.

"I think that people think this is just an American problem, and it's not," she said in an interview with CBC Radio's Metro Morning.
