Ont. minister criticized for saying he wore bulletproof vest in Toronto neighbourhood

An Ontario minister tasked with fighting racism is being criticized by his political opponents for a comment that NDP Leader Andrea Horwath calls racist.

Michael Tibollo, the province’s minister of community safety and correctional services, described a recent visit to Toronto’s Jane and Finch community with Ontario Premier Doug Ford, which he says included a “horrifying” stop to a crack house.

The minister pointed out that he wore a bulletproof vest during the police ride-along.
