The Association of Canada Lands Surveyors is posting ads in Yukon newspapers. The association is attempting to track down surveyor Glen Lamerton after he failed to respond to repeated queries from the association regarding a hearing to address possible incompetence or professional misconduct.
“We published the notices in the paper because we cannot reach Mr. Lamerton,” said Jean-Claude Tetreault, executive director of the Association of Canada Lands Surveyors.
“It is not standard procedure,” he added.
Lamerton has successfully evaded all other forms of contact from the association, including a slew of registered letters, and the official serving of documents.
The hearing, scheduled for November 19, is in response to two complaints against Lamerton filed at the end of last winter.
If found guilty, Lamerton could face a cancellation of membership, a licence revocation, a penalty of $10,000 or “any other action that the discipline committee deems appropriate.”
Whether he shows up or not, the hearing will go forward, said Tetreault.
The meeting is not open to the public.
