Canada won't be sending government diplomats to the Winter Olympics in Beijing this February. Neither will the United States, United Kingdom or Australia.

Officials hope the move will send a message to China that human rights abuses by its government have not gone unnoticed. Meanwhile, Beijing dismissed the announcements as a "farce."
