    Standing ovation for Sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers

    Vickers is a retired member of the RCMP. An online commenter noted "His demeanour is a credit to him. It is obvious that he took no pleasure in killing this man but that he takes his duty seriously. He is a good man, a great Canadian."

    An emotional opening to today's sitting of the House of Commons. The daily Speaker's Parade to the House is led by Sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers, who shot and killed the gunman in yesterday's attack. Watch raw video as MPs give him a standing ovation.

    God bless Sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers. A good man, indeed.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.

    I agree. Kevin Vickers was not only a hero for the Canadian people, but also for the free world.
