War of words erupts between CTV reporter Marci Ien, Toronto police over racism accusations

A war of words has erupted between Toronto police and a broadcast journalist who claims she was pulled over because she is black.

Marci Ien, a co-host for CTV’s The Social, wrote an opinion piece in the Globe and Mail this week alleging racism played a role in her recent traffic stop outside her home.

“For the third time in eight months, I was being questioned by a police officer — and I had broken no law,” Ien wrote in the piece published on Monday. “If you are black in Canada, you are subject to a different standard and, often, seemingly, different laws.”
