Canada's Sergeant at Arms stops House of Commons attacker
 
The 57-year old RCMP veteran stopped the attacker right outside the chambers. I guess it is true what they say, the Mounties always get their man. Good on him, it is sad it had to be like that, but he did the job.

Ottawa shootings: Kevin Vickers, parliament's sergeant-at-arms, hailed as hero

Gents, my gal lives in Toronto, and here's what she had to say when I sent a sympathetic note about it. (She was also on vacation with relatives in the backcountry, and had recently gone rifle shooting for the first time.)

Quote:

"Yep, my suspitions that it was co-ordinated in some way shape or form too. He received a Hero's welcome upon entering Parliament the next morning, and the whole country feels the man is a hero - and he's so humble about it he was almost teary-eyed when the heads of all three parties in Parliament came over to shake his hand and give him a hug in thanks.

"We may have been shaken, but will not fold under the pressure. What these extremists don't seem to realise that with all the people they murder, there won't be any room left in Heaven for them when they're finally put down like they deserve. Hope they like heat... *lol*

[personal snipped] "If you think the video I sent looks good, wait until you see me with the big gun - only a pic, no video, but I think I look as funny as hell wearing my Aunt's jacket and my cousin's ear mufflers! :)"
