Canadian MPs vote to recognize China’s treatment of Uighurs as genocide

Canadian MPs have voted on Monday to declare China’s treatment of Uighur Muslims a genocide.

The Conservative motion passed overwhelmingly in the House of Commons with 266 votes to zero. The Liberal cabinet abstained from voting.

An amendment to the motion, proposed by Bloc Quebecois MP Alexis Brunelle-Duceppe, calling on the International Olympic Committee to move the 2022 Olympic Games out of China if the genocide continues also passed 229 to 29 votes.

As Abigail Bimman reports, no MPs voted against the motion, but not everyone voted either.
