On Monday, there will be a vote in the House of Commons calling on the government to declare China’s actions against the Uyghurs a genocide. The Conservatives, Bloc, Greens, and NDP are all expected to back the motion – which was put forth by the Conservative Party. With Trudeau having been unwilling to say China is committing genocide – something he has accused Canada of doing – he was asked by journalist Annie Bergeron-Oliver whether Liberal MPs would have a free vote, or whether they will be whipped into voting against it. As you can see below, he refused to answer the question he was asked, and when confronted on his failure to answer it, he simply ignored the follow up: “Our @AnnieClaireBO asks PMJT how he will vote on the CPC motion on if China’s actions are a genocide against the Uyghurs. He didn’t answer the Q, and Annie tried to follow up to get him to answer but he just repeated his answer in french”
