For Canadian government officials, Valentine’s Day was the best day to discuss the zombie apocalypse. According to a Feb. 14 Yahoo News report, the zombie apocalypse was the topic of choice during a Canadian Parliament session on Valentine’s Day.
The publication reports that during a House of Commons meeting, Winnipeg Parliament member Pat Martin asked Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird about zombie apocalypse preparations. This was just the beginning of the best “you can’t make this stuff up” type of government debate or the modern age “youtube viral” sensation.
During the discussion, Martin requested that the government adapt measures for dealing with possible zombie invasions. To the amusement of his colleagues, he said, “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.”
And he did not stop there. Martin continued, “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?”
Not to be outdone or to miss out on the fun, the Minister of Foreign Affairs John Baird who seemed to be enjoying the whole thing, responded, “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!”
