Just days after hijackers interrupted a TV station with a message that the bodies of the dead were rising and attacking the living, the House of Commons assured Canadians that the country remains a zombie free zone. Obviously a wave of relief swept over the nation, with the confidence that 1) Canada is a safe haven 2) As fans of The Walking Dead, our politicians have fantastic television taste.
More context: Winnipeg NDP Pat Martin brought up the matter of a government disaster planning exercise that used a mock zombie invasion as its premise.
“I don’t need to tell you, Mr. Speaker, that zombies don’t recognize borders,” Martin warned. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird assured the house that he is “dead-icated” to the matter.
