Episode 5.2: Sgt-at-Arms Kevin Vickers and the Parliament Hill Shooting
Play • 54 min

On October 22, 2014 Sgt-at-Arms Kevin Vickers walked from his office directly into the history books.

Within hours of his actions that morning, actions that he is quick to say were part of a larger effort by RCMP and parliamentary security forces, his name was known the world over as the Sgt-at-Arms who when duty called, his answer was immediate and unwavering - he grabbed his sidearm and without hesitation moved towards and engaged with the terrorist threat.

In this episode, Episode 5 Part 2, Kevin and I talk about the build-up to that morning, the role and nature of the Parliamentary Protective Service, and the level of fitness and discipline he maintained to ensure he was able to execute when the situation required it.

Under Reserve thanks Kevin for his time, and his service.
