Premier Doug Ford is defending his controversial appointment of a Toronto police constable to the Ontario Human Rights Commission — and admitting that policing is a family affair to him.

"There's no secret I absolutely love our police officers," Ford told reporters Friday at Peel Regional Police headquarters.

"And I'm proud to say that three out of my four daughters are with police officers, so there's my bias right there as well," he said in announcing $20.5 million in funding for the Peel force to fight gang and gun violence.
