Kevin Vickers named ambassador to Ireland

Kevin Vickers, the House of Commons sergeant-at-arms who became a household name in October after his confrontation with a gunman in the hallway on Parliament Hill, will be Canada's next ambassador to Ireland.

Vickers replaces Loyola Hearn, a former Conservative cabinet minister from Newfoundland and Labrador, who held the post from 2011 until last August. The position is now vacant.
