We at SeafoodNews are deeply saddened by the death of Christian Brun. Our sympathies go out to his family, and also to all members of the Maritime Fishermen's Union. Christian was a good friend, and I had worked with him for years on lobster and snow crab issues in New Brunswick. He was always engaging, organized, and passionate about the fishery. Now, I miss him a lot, as I learned from our story below from Acadie Nouvelle that he had a great many interests outside of fisheries, including time in Africa and as a writer and poet and painter. We will never get to discuss these things. Monday, the day of the accident, was a sad day in Atlantic Canada, and for all of us involved in Canadian fisheries.
The Director General of the Maritime Fishermen's Union, Christian Brun, died in a car accident on Highway 11 in Miramichi, New Brunswick, Monday morning.
An employee of the UPM confirmed the news to the Acadie Nouvelle Monday afternoon.
The Miramichi Police Department issued a statement confirming that a man aged 46 of Cormier Village died in a two-vehicle accident in Lower Newcastle, on the road between Miramichi and Neguac.
A man aged 69 from Miscou was also killed in the collision. He was involved in the second car, a Kia Sportage. Both men died on the scene.
The news of the death of Mr. Brun has shaken all UPM staff...
