Conservatives Urge Government to Take Stronger Action on Rohingya Crisis

Conservative deputy foreign affairs critic Garnett Genuis, public safety critic Pierre Paul-Hus and Inter Pares program manager Kevin Malseed hold a news conference in Ottawa to call on the Canadian government to take stronger action on the Rohingya humanitarian crisis.

The Conservatives say that strong, new sanctions are necessary. The party is also asking for the government to release the final report from Bob Rae, Canada’s special envoy to Myanmar. An estimated 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh to escape violence carried out by Myanmar’s military. (March 21, 2018) (no interpretation)
