At Wednesday’s House of Commons meeting, Winnipeg Parliament member Pat Martin asked Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird about zombie apocalypse preparations. What followed was a debate that has created YouTube viral gold. Martin asks for the government to put in place measures for dealing with an invasion of zombies.
“I don’t need to tell you, Mr. Speaker, that zombies don’t recognize borders. Zombie invasion in the United States could easily turn into a continent-wide pandemic if it’s not contained.
On behalf of concerned Canadians everywhere, I want to ask the minister of foreign affairs, is he working with his American counterparts to develop an international zombie strategy so that a zombie invasion does not turn into a zombie apocalypse?”
Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird responded to Martin saying., “Mr. Speaker, I want to assure this member and all Canadians that I am dead-i-cated to ensuring that this never happens. I want to say categorically to this member and through him to all Canadians that under the leadership of this prime minister, Canada will never become a safe haven for zombies. Ever!”
Oh Canada. You are so awesome.
And Canadian Parliament members have great taste in neckties.
