MP Len Webber – Petition – Uyghurs in Canadian Parliament

Mr. Len Webber (Calgary Confederation, CPC): Mr. Speaker, I have a petition regarding the issue in China. It brings attention to the Uighur Muslims and the ongoing campaign of the Uighur birth suppression by the Chinese Communist Party which includes methods such as forced sterilization and abortion. It is estimated that up to three million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities have been detained in what have been described as concentration camps. We would like to use the Magnitsky Act to impose sanctions on those who are responsible for these heinous crimes.
