At a House of Commons meeting, member of parliament Pat Martin from the New Democratic Party asked Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird about Canada's zombie apocalypse preparations on Wednesday.
The rather out-of-the-blue question was posed on the House floor in a serious tone to the bemusement of other members.
Playing along with the farce, Baird replied, "Mr. Speaker, I want to assure this member and all Canadians that I am dead-i-cated to ensuring that this never happens."
He added, "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!"
