Members of the Canadian Parliament voted against approving mandatory labeling of genetically modified [GMO] foods in a vote in the House of Commons [May 17].

The private members bill C-291 — introduced by Pierre-Luc Dusseault, the NDP (New Democratic Party) MP for Sherbrooke, Quebec — was defeated by a significant margin, with 67 yeas, and 216 nays.

The debate in Canada follows the passage of the National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law in the US, which was signed into law by President Obama in 2016.
