A bill aimed at preventing the federal government from imposing Covid vaccine mandates for employment or travel in Canada was voted down in the House of Commons Wednesday.

The private member’s bill championed by Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre, dubbed the “Prevention of Government-imposed Vaccination Mandates Act,” or Bill C-278, faced stiff opposition from Liberal and NDP MPs.

The bill received 114 votes in favour and 205 against, with all Liberal, NDP, and Bloc MPs voting against it.

The bill sought to amend the Financial Administration Act, the Canada Labour Code, and several other laws to prohibit the federal government from imposing vaccination mandates in the future.
