Bravery & Cowardice in One Post

Canadian Parliament Votes Unanimously To Recognize China's Genocide - Washington Free Beacon

Good. I wish our own government would do something to react to the genocide of the Uyghurs.

A resolution in Canada's parliament to declare China’s human-rights abuses against Uighur Muslims a genocide passed unanimously on Monday.

The 266-0 vote opens the door to further policy action from the Canadian government

And it passed unanimously. Some things transcend politics and party.

Or at least it should. From the same article:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and most of his cabinet declined to attend the vote. One cabinet member, foreign affairs minister Marc Garneau, abstained on behalf of the government.

Trudeau previously objected to the use of the term "genocide" to describe the mass incarceration and coercive population control ongoing in western China, saying the issue warrants further study.

That’s just sickening. Frankly the kind of cowardly behavior that I would expect from our own President Joe Biden (D-USA). Just when I thought there was hope for Canada.
