Trudeau says Beijing Winter Olympic boycott decision coming ‘later today’ – National
“We will have an announcement later today,” said Trudeau when asked by reporters when Canada will make a decision.
Calls have been growing over recent days as Canada’s closest allies have announced their plans not to send official representatives to the Beijing Olympics in February as part of a diplomatic boycott over China’s human rights abuses, particularly against the Uyghur ethnic minority.
The United States, the U.K., and Australia all announced their decisions this week.
More to come.
