VIDEO: Emotional Standing Ovation for Canadian Hero Kevin Vickers

The sergeant-at-arms in Canada’s House of Commons, Kevin Vickers, is one tough guy. The 58-year-old New Brunswick native spent nearly three decades in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and was appointed to his current post in 2006. The mountie got his man yesterday when he shot and killed terrorist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau as the gunman stormed through the parliament building.

Today was the emotional opening of parliament with an extended standing ovation for Vickers, who will assuredly never have to buy a drink again.
