Zombie Preparedness at the Cannery: V

Stock up for the spookiest night of the year with a trick and a treat! This Halloween means the end of our Zombie Preparedness series, but we hope you have all learned something valuable.

The trick this week is a brute-force smasher. The tiller is disguised as a part of a boat: you would need it to adjust a rudder by hand. The unpainted section at the end fits into a slot on the rudder and is able to pivot the rudder of a small boat from one side to the other. It is removable for zombie-defence purposes, especially in a pinch if there is a seaworthy zombie trying to get onto your repurposed fishing skiff while you are trying to make a getaway. This one is more than a metre long and a modest three pounds. Perfect for eliminating brain-obsessed threats.


The treat is a high-protein snack to keep up your energy. Food will be scarce in a post-apocalyptic world, and peanut butter has a surprisingly long shelf life.


This jar of rock solid peanut butter may date back as far as the late 1940s. It was manufactured by “Kersey’s” of Victoria, British Columbia. It has been partially eaten, and it was found in the Cannery and accessioned in 1992. Stir well before using.

These artefacts have been rediscovered as part of the 2013 Parks Canada Collections Rationalization Project.
