Warning issued

Safety Authority: Cites unsafe gas work

John Lund

The British Columbia Safety Authority (BCSA) has issued a news release that calls on homeowners, businesses and building managers in the Shuswap, particularly Salmon Arm, to contact the BCSA if they have had  gas work performed by John Lund.

States the news release: “BCSA has identified numerous instances of Mr. Lund leaving hazardous conditions after working on gas appliances such as furnaces and hot water heaters. He does not possess a valid gas contractor’s licence and is not qualified to perform any work related to gas appliances or equipment that is regulated by the BCSA.

“We are asking the public to immediately contact us if you are aware of any work on gas appliances performed by John Lund,” said Wayne Lock, Provincial Gas Safety Manager with BCSA. “Improper work on gas appliances creates risks such as fire or carbon monoxide poisoning which can be fatal.”

The release asks that anyone with information regarding work performed by Lund call BCSA at 1-866-566-7233, or email info@safetyauthority.ca immediately.

Lund, former longtime president of the now-defunct Lion’s Club, told the Observer he did not wish to comment publicly and suggested the newspaper contact his lawyer. His lawyer was not available for comment.
