Ottawa, ON — Today, the Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, released his plan to secure human rights by banning products made with forced and enslaved labour. 

“For years, we’ve known Uyghur slave labour is being used by China’s Communist regime in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region to produce products like cotton, tomatoes, and solar panels for export,” said O’Toole. “As Prime Minister, I won’t hesitate to act against this disgusting practice and ensure that the worst human rights offenders don’t profit from these abuses.” 

A Conservative government will dramatically revise Canada’s supply chain legislation to meaningfully enforce the country’s commitment not to import products made with slave labour, including products the Chinese Communist Party forces Uyghur Muslims to make.

“Canada’s Conservatives will always stand up for human rights,” concluded O’Toole. “We will stand with our allies around the world to confront evil and tyranny wherever it exists and promote greater freedom for all.” 

If you don’t care about standing up for human rights, you have three parties to choose from in this election. If you do, then there is only one choice – Erin O’Toole and Canada’s Conservatives.
