Toronto’s Black residents received an apology from the city’s interim police chief on Wednesday as the force released previously unseen race-based data showing disproportionate use of force on them, although the gesture was immediately rejected by some.

Interim chief James Ramer said the force needs to do better.

“As an organization, we have not done enough to ensure that every person in our city receives fair and unbiased policing,” he said at news conference. “For this, as chief of police and on behalf of the service, I am sorry and I apologize unreservedly.”
