Kevin Vickers, who became a Canadian ambassador to Ireland after being named a hero to help end the Berlin House attack in 2014, is thinking about switching to politics.
Former Middle East commander said he was considering running for Liberal Leadership in his native New Brunswick, though he was "a long way from making a decision".
Lisa Harris, the Liberal MLA for the Miramichi-Neguac Bay, said she recently met Vickers and believes she would be an exciting lead candidate for the party.
Former Prime Minister Brian Gallant recently announced he would depart from the position of a liberal leader earlier than planned, saying the party must move forward.
In an interview with Trout Brook, N.B., Vickers said he wanted to continue the legacy of his father, Bill, who started Co-Op Dairy Northumberland a few decades ago.
