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.
