Ontario Premier Doug Ford says Canada doesn't have the "systemic, deep roots" of racism that the United States does.

Ford was asked Tuesday to comment on the protests in cities across the U.S. that were sparked by the death of a black man after he'd been pinned down by a white police officer in Minneapolis.

Ford, who spent a lot of time in the U.S. for his family's label business, said the difference between the two countries is that in Canada, people for the most part get along, working and shopping together.
