Red Shirt Foundation looks to turn “pain to purpose” on shooting anniversary

It was a year ago that the unthinkable happened in Nanaimo… an armed man gunned down four workers at the now-closed WFP sawmill.

Two of the victims died: Micheal Lunn and Fred McEachern.

Afterward, Marlene Lunn, Michael’s wife, helped start the Red Shirt Foundation


Lunn says they want to raise awareness around the issue of workplace violence and do something to stop it.

Their “Walk to Stop Workplace Violence” takes place from 5:30pm to 8:30pm April 30th at Maffeo Sutton Park.

Lunn says they’re asking everyone who comes out to wear red, or purchase a shirt at the event for $15, to help out the Foundation.

The man accused of those shootings, meanwhile, remains in custody.

A date for 48 year Kevin Addison’s trial on two counts of first degree murder and two counts of attempted murder will be set on May 25th.
