Organizers of Nanaimo’s “Walk to Stop Workplace Violence” say they’re overwhelmed by the show of community support.
The Walk was organized by the Red Shirt Foundation, a group started by the wife of Micheal Lunn, one of the two men killed in the April 30th, 2014 shooting at the WFP sawmill in Nanaimo.
Among the hundreds who came out for the Walk Thursday night was Tony Sudar, a mill manager who was injured in the shooting.
The Red Shirt Foundation works under the motto “moving from pain to progress” and it’s dedicated to spreading awareness about workplace violence… and stopping it.
And Marlene Lunn says the turnout shows they’re gaining steam.
Lunn says the Foundation plans to make the walk an annual event.
