Conservative leader Erin O'Toole has announced that his party will table a motion to label China's treatment of Uyghurs a "genocide."

O'Toole says he is calling on all Liberal MPs to support the motion.

"We cannot turn a blind eye, I hope Mr. Trudeau has a change of heart and votes for this motion as well... never again means a commitment to calling out conduct today, not just remembering atrocities in the past, it must fuel our leadership today," O'Toole said.

This motion comes just days after Trudeau refused to label the ongoing human rights abuses in China's Xinjiang province against the Uyghur people a genocide, saying the term needed to be "properly justified and demonstrated."

The prime minister, however, had previously used the term when discussing the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada, telling a crowd in 2019 that the he accepted the report's conclusions, "including that what happened amounts to genocide."
