I think the big issue is not enough guns in Canada.


For those of you that can't view youtube for whatever reason, I put a copy on my crappy server.

It came to light that Quebec, like some US states, is using "Zombie apocalypse" scenarios to test emergency preparedness, to create a worst case scenario. Its a totally paper exercise, no one is dressing up like zombies for a live test(darn it).

So a couple of Canadian politicians had some fun with it.

Things that are serious do not need to be solemn

To help to ensure emergency preparedness for a fire/flood, the whole zombie apocalypse thing is a great PR move. The CDC website in the States has a section on that.

http://www.cdc.gov/phpr/zombies.htm

"We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via Zombie Preparedness; and as our own director, Dr. Ali Khan, notes, "If you are generally well equipped to deal with a zombie apocalypse you will be prepared for a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake, or terrorist attack." So please log on, get a kit, make a plan, and be prepared!"
