So i found this artical today and it made me think really this is what we are discussing. We have elected officals preparing for a zombie attack and spent money in BC to have a Preparedness Week . So should the rest of us be concerned that the government is preparing for zombies.


Canada’s government is working at full speed these days, as highlighted by Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird's assurance that the country is being kept safe from a possible zombie invasion.

Cue record scratch. Pardon me?

Yes, apparently we have nothing to fear from a zombie invasion. Baird made the assurance after being questioned on the topic in the House of Commons by NDP MP Pat Martin.

Baird said, according to Postmedia News:

Mr. Speaker, I want to assure this member and all Canadians that I am dedicated 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.

And while the topic is entirely out of the ordinary, it may not be entirely out of the blue.

The Canadian Press reported yesterday that Quebec's public security department discussed how to handle a zombie apocalypse during an industry symposium.

The entirely hypothetical (or is it?) topic of a zombie invasion has actually become a fairly common debate for disaster response groups. It allows for a discussion about emergency practices without straying too closely to an actual emergency scenario.It also captures the attention of the public.

British Columbia held a Zombie Preparedness Week to test its emergency equipment last year.

I wonder if the Zombies will show more consideration to National Boundaries than the illegal immigrants?

The idea of a zombie invasion does sound wildly ridiculous!

One thing we should note though is that many people are in need of insulin due to having type 1 diabetes. Does anyone here know what happens to those that do not get their meds in time?

A few years back while at work I was talking to an older gentleman, his story sounded ridiculous also. While at work one day he hopped into a truck and decided it would be a good idea to run over his foreman with the truck. He attempted to do this while being just shy of his insulin intake.

He was removed from the truck safely and no one was hurt but the police were called and set to arrest him. Thankfully for him he had informed the nurse of his medical condition as well as a few co-workers. Instead of being taking promptly to jail, an ambulance took him to the hospital to be diagnosed, and was treated for low blood sugar.

This fellow did something that scared him and was vocal about what can happen if not treated quickly. He never lost his job due to what happened but it was a wake up call to management to keep people on schedule for coffee breaks and lunch breaks. Imagine what could happen due to a breakdown in the supply chain.

Zombies may be people acting irrationally due to the loss of the intake of insulin/sugar.

Good story!

Exactly what I am thinking. The zombies will be all the people who no longer have access to medication. They will do anything and everything to get there pills. And also people will start to turn on each other for food. No food? Then the flesh eating will start! So the whole zombie Apocalypse thing is not so unbelievable.
