China is committing genocide against its Muslim Uighur minority, according to a declaration passed by Canada’s House of Commons on February 22. The Globe and Mail noted that the non-binding motion had been approved by a vote of 266-0 with the support of all opposition parties and many members of the ruling Liberal Party.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was quoted by The Guardian as saying genocide was an “extremely loaded” term and the evidence against China had not yet been studied sufficiently. Trudeau did not show up for the vote, according to the newspaper, which noted that the government had been represented by Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau who had abstained during the vote.
