Justin Trudeau refuses to condemn China’s genocide of Uyghurs, while in 2019 blamed Canada for the genocide of Indigenous women

Justin Trudeau has not decided if he will declare the treatment of Uyghurs by Communist China to be genocide. Canadian Olympic Committee chief executive officer David Shoemaker said that Canada will not boycott the games in China. https://tnc.news/2021/02/15/trudeau-government-refuses-to-call-treatment-of-uyghurs-genocide-undecided-on-boycott-of-beijing-olympics/

In 2019 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government accepts that the murders and disappearances of Indigenous women and girls across Canada in recent decades amount to an act of “genocide.” https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/trudeau-mmiwg-genocide-1.5161681

British lawyers from London based Essex Court Chambers legal opinion indicates that there is evidence that the crime of genocide is currently being committed against the Uyghurs in Xinjiang. Uyghurs, as an ethnic group, fall within the purview of the protected groups for the purposes of the definition of genocide (as in Article II of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and Article 6 of the Rome Statute to the International Criminal Court (ICC)). According to the legal opinion, that “it is at least arguable on the available evidence that there is an intent to destroy, in whole or in part, the Uyghur population of Xinjiang as such.” The evidence suggests that the actus reus requirements for the following specific crimes of genocide are fulfilled: “causing serious bodily or mental harm to Uyghurs in detention, including acts of torture and forced sterilizations; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.” https://www.forbes.com/sites/ewelinaochab/2021/02/08/british-lawyers-find-credible-evidence-of-genocide-against-the-uyghurs-in-xinjiang/
