Canadian MPs urge Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to label China's persecution of Uighurs a genocide

The House of Commons in Canada have accused the Chinese government of carrying out a mass genocide against Uighurs and other Turkic Muslims and urge Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to officially term this treatment as a 'genocide'. The majority of MPs voted in favour of a Conservative motion that says China's actions in its western Xinjiang region meet the definition of genocide set out in the 1948 United Nations Genocide Convention. The final tally was 266 in favour and zero opposed. Two MPs formally abstained. Trudeau and almost all of his cabinet colleagues were absent for the vote. Listen in!
