The motion for a special committee on anti-corruption was voted down today, to a final vote of 181 against, and 143 in favour. All Members of Parliament voted within their party's position.

Opposition Leader Erin O'Toole said that the special committee would have investigate "WE Charity and the Liberal government and their families, the lobbying efforts for amendments to the income tax act in respect to the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy program, the acquisition, purchase, and approval of Baylis Medical Company ventilators, and topics other house committees related to" the Liberal Party's actions.

The Liberals argued that the committee would be wasting government time and resources when it should instead be dealing with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Parties that voted for the committee were the entirety of the Conservatives and the Bloc Quebecois. Those against were the entirety of the Liberals, the New Democrats, the Greens, and the two Independent MPs, both of whom were formerly Liberal.
