Thousands upon thousands of Canadian citizens were slaughtered over the weekend to prevent further spread of the dreaded foot and mouth disease which has ravaged Britain in recent months. Although it is estimated that only 1 in 30,000,000 Canadians are carriers of the disease which has no harmful effects on humans, government officials have chosen to take swift action “so as to err on the side of safety, rather than regret our inaction at a later date.”
