The Canadian government has gone on the record about the zombie apocalypse. In an amazing exchange on the floor of the House of Commons today, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird was asked if he was working to “develop an international zombie strategy so that a zombie invasion does not turn into a zombie apocalypse.”
New Democratic Party Parliament Member Pat Martin applauded the United States Center for Disease Control’s emergency preparedness measures premised on a zombie outbreak and wanted to know how Canada would act to protect its citizens.
Baird assured the House of Commons that he was “dead-icated” to ensuring that the country would never be a safe haven for zombies.
