Canada is levelling sanctions against Chinese officials over human-rights violations against minority Muslims in that country.

Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau says in taking the dramatic step, Canada is joining its partners in calling on China to put an end to a systematic campaign of repression.

The move is being taken in concert with the United Kingdom, the U.S. and the European Union.

  1. Canada is joining the cause because if under international pressure Human rights can be reinstated in China then Canadian citizens will also get justice. But Trudeau is a perfect example of an incompetent leader. Lack of stand for his own citizens cost heavier to Michael Kovrig & Michael Spavor who are being caught in China on the charges of espionage.
