British Columbia Zombies – the Modern Canadian Zombie
May 19, 2012, In the National Post: “The importance of zombies to Canadian life” by Dave Bidini:
last week the Conservative Party hired the zombies to simulate activity within the House of Commons for young MPs green to the ways of federal politics. After the exercise, a spokesperson said that the behaviour of the undead was “very similar to members of the opposition,” who clawed the air and “yowled for flesh” and expressed themselves by grunts and stuttered gestures in the manner of new NDP leader Thomas Mulcair. After a few sessions, he said, the young MPs took the zombies’ behaviour in stride, and, once they “strapped beards on them,” à la Mulcair, it became easy for rookie representatives to better know their enemy, and to relax in the climate of the House.
