Kevin Vickers has made it official: he's running for the leadership of the New Brunswick Liberal Party. Vickers is a former House of Commons sergeant-at-arms and RCMP officer, as well as the former Canadian ambassador to Ireland. Vickers is running to replace former premier Brian Gallant, who resigned as Liberal leader last year after failing to win his party a second majority. Charlo-area businessman Gaetan Pelletier, who had announced he was running, attended Vickers' launch and said he was endorsing him rather than running himself. The Liberal Party said that as of Friday morning, no candidate had filed official paperwork to run.
