Stephen Colbert airs this comedic tribute to the Canadian hero who risked his life during the Ottawa Parliament Shootings last week.
At 9:52 a.m. on Oct. 22 2014, a solider was shot on guard at the National War Memorial in downtown Ottawa. Police arrived on the scene and quickly moved in along the corridors of the building in search for the suspect. More shots were fired inside the Centre Block Lobby in proximity to the Hall of Honor. Kevin Vickers, the current Sergeant-at-Arms of the Canadian Parliament Building, remained in his office and stepped out to take action.
Last Wednesday’s episode of the Colbert Report features this awesome tribute in which Colbert refers to Canadians as “steely eyed snow balled John Woo diving sh*t kickers,” in which he follows with singing the national anthem.
