  • Kevin Vickers to announce Friday if he'll seek New Brunswick Liberal leadership

FREDERICTON — Former House of Commons sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers is expected to announce Friday whether he intends to seek the Liberal leadership in New Brunswick.


The retired ambassador to Ireland tweeted Wednesday afternoon that a news conference is set for noon in Newcastle on Friday.


Vickers was hailed as a hero for helping to end the 2014 attack on Parliament Hill.


Last month he said in a bilingual Facebook post that he would retire as Canada's envoy to Ireland, effective March 2, and return to his home in Miramichi, N.B.


More recently he has been travelling the province to hear from residents before announcing his decision on the leadership.


Lisa Harris, the Liberal member for Miramichi Bay-Neguac, says it's a big day for the province to have Vickers considering a run for the leadership.


Rene Ephestion, who leads the New Brunswick Liberal Multicultural Inclusion Commission, has also expressed an interest in running for the leadership.
