Ministers Jean-Yves Duclos (president of the Treasury Board), Marc Miller (Indigenous services) and Patty Hajdu speak with reporters on Parliament Hill as the federal cabinet meets. They face questions on issues including the federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the distribution plan for an eventual COVID-19 vaccine, and the water crisis facing the Neskantaga First Nation. Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne is asked whether China’s treatment of Uyghurs in Xinjiang amounts to genocide and about that country’s reported use of covert agents to target Canada’s Chinese community.
