THE Canadian parliament debated an important issue on Wednesday - how prepared is the county for a zombie invasion?

MP Pat Martin asked foreign minister John Baird whether the Canadian government had any emergency measures in place in case a zombie outbreak ever occurred. Martin made the crucial point that, should their American neighbours become over-run by the undead, as in Brad Pitt’s new movie World War Z, Canada would be at great risk - because "zombies don't recognise borders".

In response, Baird assured parliament that "under the leadership of this Prime Minster, Canada will never become a save haven for zombies ever!"
