Morning Update: Parliament declares China is conducting genocide against its Muslim minorities
 

Omair Quadri

Good morning,
 
The House of Commons overwhelmingly endorsed a motion to recognize that China is committing genocide against its Muslim minority, with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his cabinet abstaining from the vote amid a nearly frozen relationship with Beijing.
 
The parliamentary declaration is certain to anger Beijing, whose relations with Ottawa were already strained over the arrest of a Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. executive in British Columbia and China’s retaliatory detention of Canadians Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, among other matters. China’s ambassador warned just days ago that the declaration would constitute interference in his country’s domestic affairs.

Vaccine developers say lack of federal funding hurt domestic capabilities
 
Canada is behind the developed world in COVID-19 vaccinations because the federal government provided insufficient funding early on in the pandemic to smaller companies that could have developed a potential inoculation at home, vaccine developers told a federal parliamentary committee yesterday.
 
Ottawa should have taken the same approach as the United States and Britain, which provided hundreds of millions of dollars to companies with potential candidates early in the pandemic, John Lewis, an Edmonton-based biotechnology executive, told MPs. If it had done so, the country would be on the verge of making homegrown COVID-19 vaccines.

Statscan revises core inflation upward, backtracks on new methods: Several key measures of inflation were higher in January than previously reported, Statistics Canada said yesterday, after backtracking on a methodological change that had painted a more mild picture of inflation only five days ago.

Women landing more leadership jobs, but racialized, Indigenous and disabled women lag, study says: The share of women in senior leadership positions at Canadian companies is on the rise despite the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. But the number of racialized, Indigenous and disabled women in top roles remains small, and many companies don’t disclose any leadership diversity data, according to a new report.

MORNING MARKETS

Commodities rally: Optimism about the economic outlook pushed commodity prices higher on Tuesday, helping stocks steady as expectations of a dovish testimony by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell calmed bond yields.

In Asia, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 1.03 per cent. Markets in Japan were closed. New York futures were weaker. The Canadian dollar was trading at 79.23 US cents.
 

WHAT EVERYONE’S TALKING ABOUT

Editorial Board: “No Canadian government can ever expect its American counterpart to sacrifice more than minor domestic interests for the sake of our own priorities. But the Trudeau government can, at the very least, look forward to an end to the chaos and sabotage of the late, unlamented Trump years.”
 
David Shribman: “Joe Biden’s term has almost exactly 47 months to go, but his homily marking the 500,000th American death from the coronavirus will almost certainly be remembered as a defining moment in his White House passage – and the moment when he assumed the pastoral role that has been a part of the American presidency for nearly a century.”
