The specter of the inevitable zombie apocalypse raised its ugly head on the floor of the Candian Parliament this week.
Since the invasion of the living dead will almost certainly come from the United States, Parliament member Pat Martin challenged the Foreign Minister, John Baird, on how well he was working with America to develop a strategy that stops the rise of the zombies before it turns into an apocalypse.
"I rise today to salute the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and the province of Quebec for putting in place emergency measures in an effort to deal with the possibility of an invasion of zombies. 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."
"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 Minster, Canada will never become a safe haven for zombies ever!"
The emergency first responders in Bangor, Maine are ready for the zombie apocalypse!
"... the gathering served as a training session on how to respond to an epidemic if one spread through Maine. In the mock situation, disease, chaos and the walking dead took over. While the zombie apocalypse wasn't real pandemics like the H1N1 virus in 2009 and the SARS outbreak in 2002 have proven to authorities they need to be prepared for anything."
