Yesterday I joined the ranks of the living dead at the Vancouver zombie walk. I heard about it the night before from some friends, and thought, "oh, that'll be fun. Maybe there'll be a dozen people there. What the hell."
After learning about the Zombiewalk from Susan Eagle, London City Council unanimously approved the formation of the Zombiewalk 2005 Task Force, headed by Gord Hume. The purpose of the Task Force is to bring the Walk to London. The Walk would begin in East London with the eventual destination of the John Labatt Center. Supporters of the event emphasize the importance of increasing diversity and creativity in London. Funding for the event will come from taxpayers.
"It is an especially opportune time to organize a gathering of Zombies," chirped our Worship, Anne-Marie Dee Dee Dum Decicco, who is also a member of the Zombiewalk 2005 Task Force. "Like, it would be so good for London's diversity profile and a very special compliment to 'The Lost Soul Stroll' which celebrates London's Heritage."
