According to Mr. Trudeau, the term “genocide” is “extremely loaded“, so serious international standards must be met before it can formally be used in describing China’s (mis)treatment of the Uighurs (as per the Gravitas video below).
Of course, he is right, it is heavily loaded and it should not be used lightly. Many of Bambi’s friends lost relatives to genocides during civil war. So, her own definitions or points of reference are like Mr. Romeo Dallaire’s tragic experience in Rwanda. To come back to Mr. Trudeau now, why does he use words like genocide or like systemic racism or white supremacy, etc. lightly? Mind you, he does it only when it is his own country… or our neighbours, but never when it is about China?
Indeed, in contrast, he seems to always walk on eggshells when it comes to China. He does not do it with his own fellow citizens, namely with regard to the tragedy of deaths and disappearances of indigenous women and girls.
Every day and every night, Canadians self-flagellate because they are so bad as a country with our ongoing “genocide” of indigenous people. Yes, there has been a cultural genocide sadly for sure :(…. but ongoing? And we are guilty, but not China? Does that make any sense? Perhaps it does if we call Mr. Trudeau the Governor-in-Chief of China in Canada?
