The House of Commons has unanimously agreed to call Chinese treatment of Uyghurs and other Muslims a genocide – but without the prime minister and cabinet voting for or against. Peter Van Dusen has reaction from Chinese ambassador Cong Peiwu on potential retaliation against Canada, and more from MPs Rob Oliphant, Eric Duncan, and Jack Harris. We also hear from journalists Joël-Denis Bellavance (La Presse), Susan Delacourt (Toronto Star), and John Ivison (National Post).
