WATCH: Asian-Canadian MPs SLAM Trudeau after falsely accusing Conservatives of spreading anti-Asian hate

"The Prime Minister's remarks are provocative, divisive, and destructive to this House, and I ask through you Mr. Speaker that the Prime Minister apologize."

Two Conservative MPs had harsh words for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after he shut down questions about the threat Communist China poses to Canadians, including at Canada's top microbiology lab, by accusing Conservatives of "pandering to anti-Asian racism."

Conservative MP Nelly Shin, who is the first Korean-Canadian to be elected to the House of Commons, said "As you know, Mr. Speaker, the Official Opposition have been questioning the Prime Minister on the topic of security at Canada's top microbiology lab, and the partnership with scientists with ties to the Chinese military. Instead of addressing this important issue, the Prime Minister makes accusations of racism against those members asking these vital questions of national interest."

She goes on to cite the House of Commons Procedure and Practice rulebook.

"The proceedings of the House are based on a long-standing tradition of respect for the integrity of all Members. Thus, the use of offensive, provocative or threatening language in the House is strictly forbidden. Personal attacks, insults and obscenities are not in order."

"I find it offensive that the Prime Minister is diminishing the significance of the anti-Asian crisis in Canada by using it to deflect attention away from an unrelated political issue of national security."

She adds that Canadians of Asian descent "are not political shields," and concludes by saying "The Prime Minister's remarks are provocative, divisive, and destructive to this House, and I ask through you Mr. Speaker that the Prime Minister apologize."

MP Kenny Chiu, who moved to Canada from Hong Kong in 1982, also had some words for the Prime Minister.

"The Prime Minister suggested that asking questions about the threat from China's government is anti-Asian racism. I'm an Asian-Canadian, and I'm deeply offended by this. How dare the wearer of blackface/brownface use the painful experience of racism to shield his government's callous dereliction to protect Canada from hostile foreign regimes."

He concludes by saying "I'm expressing disapproval of my government. This is not out of hate for, but rather my deep love of Canada."
