Should Canada boycott the 2022 Olympics in Beijing?
The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics are just a year away, and pressure is building for Canada to take a stand against China by boycotting them in response to China's imprisonment of the "Two Michaels" and the ongoing human rights abuses against the Uighur Muslim minority.
This week, Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole called what's happening there a genocide, and insisted the games should be relocated. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was reluctant to use the word "genocide" at all.
Today, former Canadian ambassador to China David Mulroney discusses why he calls what's happening to Uighurs in China a genocide, and the difficult stand he thinks Canada needs to take.
