Winnipeg MP Pat Martin asks Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird about ongoing preparations for the Zombie Apocalypse.
Transcript of the historical declaration made on Wednesday, Feb 13, 2013 in the Canadian House of Commons:
New Democratic Parliament Member Pat Martin: I rise today to salute the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta and the province of Quebec for putting in place emergency measures for -- to 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?
Speaker of the House Andrew Scheer: The Honorable Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird: 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 save haven for zombies, ever!
