This week, the House of Commons passed a motion to label China's persecution of Uighurs and other Turkic Muslims a genocide.

266 MPs out of 338 voted in favour of the motion, while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet abstained. 

The motion also calls on the government to push the International Olympic Committee to move the 2022 Winter Olympics out of Beijing.
