Zombie attacks have waned in the last few months but that didn't stop Canadian politicians from discussing the possibility in the legislature Wednesday.

At a House of Commons meeting, member of parliament Pat Martin from the New Democratic Party asked the Foreign Affairs Minister about Canada's zombie apocalypse preparations, said NPR.

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, Foreign Affairs chief, John 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!"

On Friday afternoon the video had nearly half a million view on Youtube.
