Vickers mulls bid for Liberal leadership

Kevin Vickers says he is considering a run at the leadership of the provincial Liberals.

Vickers said several people have reached out to encourage him to run, specifically saying several of his Acadian friends had contacted him suggesting he do it.

Although he says he is strongly considering making the move, he is a long way from making a decision.

The Miramichi native is currently the ambassador to Ireland.

He became a national hero after he shot and killed an armed terrorist at the Parliament building in 2014.

Before that, he was instrumental in helping to ease tensions during the Burnt Church Crisis in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Current Liberal leader Brian Gallant will resign his post in mid-February.
