HERO: Kevin Vickers was given a standing ovation by MPs for the lives he saved during Ottawa shooting

Canadian Parliament hero Kevin Vickers struggled to keep his emotions together this afternoon as he was given a standing ovation by MPs.
The former Mountie was applauded by MPs of all parties one day after he shot and killed Muslim convert Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
Mr Vickers was clearly overcome with emotion during the ovation, which took place during a special sitting of the parliament.
He appeared close to tears as he carried out his ceremonial duties.
As reported by Sky News, Prime Minister Stephen Harper gave a speech before he shook Mr Vickers hand. Politicians then stood again to applaud the national hero.
Mr Vickers has been hailed as a hero yesterday after he shot the gunman who had killed Corporal Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial.

Gunfire erupted close to where Prime Minister Harper was speaking.
