Friends and family of the late Michael Lunn, who was one of the employees killed at the Nanaimo mill shooting on April 30th are establishing the Red Shirt Foundation aimed at putting a stop to workplace violence. This non-profit society was formed when family friends were discussing the tragedy and decided to put the plan into action immediately.
Lynn Jacques, longtime Lunn family friend and chairwoman of the newly formed foundation said, “I think we will culminate in a national red shirt day on April 30, where people from around the world will stop and take notice and just say ‘Yes, we need to stop this.'” We say, absolutely! Despite the tragedy, it is a breath of fresh air to see people taking action and only hope that this foundation gets more than just National attention.
We will support the April 30th red shirt day!
