"We will stand up loudly and clearly for human rights," Trudeau said. "Whether it’s talking about the situation faced by the Uighurs, whether it's talking about the very concerning situation in Hong Kong, whether it’s calling out China for its coercive diplomacy."

Trudeau said Canada stands with with allies around the world and the United States, to Australia, to Great Britain, to European nations to many nations around the world who share these concerns.

Canada's opposition Conservative leader said the Chinese ambassador should apologize or be expelled from Canada.
