    This is just a few blocks from my sister's house.

    Nanaimo is rapidly on its way to becoming Vancouver Island's 'Little Surrey'.

    Hundreds mourn victim of Nanaimo sawmill shooting

    NANAIMO, B.C. — Hundreds turned out for a memorial for one of two men who were fatally shot in a Vancouver Island mill.

    Services for Fred McEachern (MAC-ACK-RIN) were held in Nanaimo and many are expected to attend Michael Lunn’s funeral later today.

    Tony Sudar, a friend and colleague who survived the shooting, says both men were wonderful and gregarious people who cherished their families.

    Kevin Douglas Addison charged in Nanaimo, B.C., sawmill shooting

    Kevin Douglas Addison has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder with a firearm following a shooting Wednesday morning at a sawmill in Nanaimo, B.C., where he used to work.

    The 47-year-old former employee of the Western Forest Products sawmill spoke in a clear voice when asked if he could hear the telephone proceedings from a cell block in Nanaimo late Wednesday night.

    Addison remains in custody and is scheduled to make another court appearance in Nanaimo on Thursday.

    September 2016:

    Kevin Addison found guilty of first-degree murder in Nanaimo mill shooting

    http://www.nanaimobulletin.com/news/395174001.html

    Families of victims of the April 30, 2014 downtown Nanaimo Western Forest Products mill shooting feel justice has been served with the shooter found guilty of murder.

    Kevin Douglas Addison, 49, was charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Michael Lunn and Fred McEachern and charged with the attempted murders of Tony Sudar and Earl Kelly. A jury of six women and six men found Addison guilty of all four counts in B.C. Supreme Court Wednesday.
    “I don’t think [Addison is] going to see the light of day and you know what? It’s unfortunate, though, again. All our families have been disrupted to say the least, but you know what? We’re strong, we’re going to go forward. This is a great example of justice being served and we’re really happy with the verdict,” said Marlene Lunn, Michael’s widow.

    Marlene and Lorraine McEachern, Fred’s widow, both said there is a sense of closure and peace.

    Kevin Addison sentenced to life without parole for 25 years for Nanaimo B.C. mill shootings

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/britis...aimo-1.3878266

    Kevin Addison was sentenced Friday in a Nanaimo, B.C., courtroom to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years, following convictions of first-degree murder and attempted murder, after the laid-off forest mill worker went on a shooting rampage.

    Addison, 50, went on a shooting spree on April 30, 2014, killing two co-workers, after he was laid off from the Western Forest Products mill.

    "We're just happy that it's done and we can carry on now," said Lorraine McEachern, the widow of Fred McEachern, one of the two men who died.

    He was convicted in September 2016 on two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
