With The Walking Dead becoming a huge television hit around the world, it has certainly brought the idea of a zombie apocalypse to the forefront. Earlier this week, somebody hacked into the emergency alert system in Montana and issued a warning about a zombie apocalypse on two Montana television stations.
Now, the Canadian Parliament has taken a stand on the issue. During a session of Canadian Parliament, New Democratic Party MP Pat Martin said, ” I rise today to salute the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta and the Province of Quebec for putting in place emergency measures to deal with the possibility of an invasion of zombies.”
Martin continued, “Now, I don’t need to tell you Mr. Speaker that zombies don’t recognize borders. And that a zombie invasion in the United States could easily turn into a continent-wide pandemic if it’s not contained. So on behalf of concerned Canadians everywhere Mr. Speaker 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?”
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird replied, “Mr. Speaker, I want to assure this member and all Canadians that I am dead-icated 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.”
