Prime Minister Justin Trudeau punched back at China on Tuesday after he was asked about China's negative comments on Canada's treatment of its Indigenous peoples.
The comments come as Canada goes before the UN Human Rights council, calling on China to open up to international observers to see first hand its treatment of the Uyghur peoples in Xinjiang province.
This prompted a response from China, who attacked Canada over its treatment of the Indigenous, especially after the findings of 215 unmarked children's graves at a residential school in Kamloops.
Trudeau, who previously called the findings of the MMIWG Report "genocide," said that it was "extremely important" that Canadians pay attention to "what's going on in China."
"The systemic abuse and human rights violations against the Muslim Uyghurs, the concerns about the situation in Hong Kong, in Tibet. These are things that matter not just to people living in China, but to people around the world," said Trudeau, who thanked his G7 allies for aligning themselves with "Canada's position."
"In Canada, we have a Truth and Reconciliation commission. Where is China's Truth and Reconciliation commission? Where is their truth?"
Trudeau said that while Canada owned up to its mistakes from the past and in its present, but that China had not displayed any sort of openness.
Trudeau said that Canadians and people around the world "are speaking up for people like the Uyghurs, who find themselves voiceless, faced with a government that will not recognize what's happening to them."
Trudeau, once again, did not use the term genocide to describe the events in China.
