Premier Doug Ford has strongly denounced Justin Trudeau's previous penchant for donning blackface and charged there's a "double standard" over how the Liberal leader's past misdeeds are being reported.

"It was unacceptable back in 2001, it's unacceptable now," said the Progressive Conservative premier, who has emerged as a favourite target of the federal Liberals during this election.

"The people are going to decide. They're going to have the opportunity to decide if they want the prime minister to continue being prime minister or they want a change," he told CTV News Toronto on Friday.
