Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau Issues Statement Slamming China For Sanctioning Canadian Parliamentarians

DM

“China’s sanctions against Canadian parliamentarians and democratic institutions are unacceptable and an attack on transparency and freedom of expression.” Following China’s sanctions against Conservative MP/Foreign Affairs Critic Michael Chong and the Parliamentary Sub-Committee on Human Rights, Foreign Affairs Minister Marc Garneau issued a statement slamming China’s move: “China’s sanctions against Canadian parliamentarians and democratic institutions are unacceptable and an attack on transparency and freedom of expression. “The Government of Canada stands with parliamentarians and all Canadians as we continue to work with partners in defence of democracy and freedom of speech and will continue to take action when international human rights obligations are violated. We need to stand together to remind those who violate human and democratic rights that the world is watching.” This is among the strongest statements issued by the Trudeau government in relation to China.
