MPs in the Canadian Parliament voted to start a study into why the government paid over $300 million to a company that failed to produce a COVID-19 vaccine. A Conservative MP brought up the issue after it was revealed that the government paid a large amount of money to the company, called Medicago, for a vaccine that did not work out. The company received over $300 million from the government but ultimately failed to produce a vaccine and was shut down. Health Minister Mark Holland defended the government’s decision, saying they had to take a risk on different vaccine options. There are also questions about the intellectual property and patents produced by Medicago, and the government is negotiating with the company that took over Medicago’s assets. The motion to launch the study calls on government officials and others involved to answer questions in front of the House committee.
