Bill C-278 received 114 ‘yea’ and 206 ‘nay’ votes on Oct. 25.

A Conservative private member’s bill that would have prevented the federal government from imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates on government employees or restricting unvaccinated Canadians from boarding public transit has been defeated in the House of Commons.

Bill C-278, also known as “An Act to prevent the imposition by the federal government of vaccination mandates for employment and travel,” received 114 “yea” and 206 “nay” votes on Oct. 25.

Pierre Poilievre first introduced the private member’s bill when he was running for the Conservative Party leadership in 2022. It was picked up by Conservative MP Dean Allison, who has been critical of COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
