“Today, I call on Justin Trudeau to actively seek the relocation of the 2022 Olympic Games. Canada should not be sending athletes to China in the middle of a genocide.
“Canada has long been a world leader in standing up for human rights and dignity. But today, we have become a nation of silence, not one of principled action.
“I think Canadians would agree that it would violate fundamental ethical principles to participate in an Olympic Games hosted by a country that is committing a genocide against part of its population.
“The Olympic Games and the athletes who compete in them have and will inspire the next generation – and they must continue to provide such inspiration. “But not in China, in the shadow of a genocide.”
