Dear Readers and Supporters;
First, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
It’s been a rough year for everyone, on all kinds of fronts for everyone, me included.
As many of you already know, I’ve been battling a recurrence of cancer for some time.
I noted in my last health update that chemotherapy was discontinued in May and eight radiation treatments provided only temporary relief. While I remain steadfast and resolute that the cancer won’t get the best of me, it has progressed to the point the blood clots in my legs have now spread to my heart and lungs.
Thank you to everyone who sent their prayers and well-wishes. With your prayers anything is possible and I will never give up hope.
These developments mean I am no longer able to maintain my website. In fact, I’ve been unable to maintain it for a few months now and the prospects of returning to my previous level of good health don’t look very promising.
Commitment to Rights, Freedoms & Facts
That said, over my career I’ve dedicated myself to using Access to Information Requests to uncover the many inconvenient facts our government loves to hide from us.
It’s been my pleasure and my honour to serve the firearms community in this capacity but, as the end draws near for me personally, I needed to find someone capable, willing and able to carry the torch for me.
Thankfully, the individual I wanted most to take over for me, Christopher di Armani, answered the call without hesitation.
For those not familiar with him, Christopher is first and foremost a liberty-loving Canadian and a staunch defender of free speech and firearms ownership. (Twitter: @ThatLibertyGuy | Facebook: ThatLibertyGuyCA | Web: ThatLibertyGuy.com)
Effective immediately, Christopher di Armani will assume full control of DennisRYoung.ca and shoulder the responsible for maintaining my website in perpetuity.
- following up on all my outstanding ATIP and FOIP requests
- following up on all my complaints to the Information Commissioners
- updating the website with new ATIP responses as those responses come in, and
- paying all costs associated with ensuring my legacy remains online.
As I said, it has been my profound pleasure and honour to serve Canada’s firearms community. Likewise, I have been humbled by your support of my efforts all these years, efforts I took on all our collective behalf.
It is my fervent hope and prayer that you will support Christopher as he takes over the reins of my life’s work in the same ways you supported me since I first started this website.
DennisRYoung.ca has always relied on supporters to pay the bills. That doesn’t change as I transition my website to Christopher’s capable hands.
I encourage you to continue supporting my research through the DONATE button at the top of the page. The only change is those donations will be directed to Christopher’s PayPal account instead of mine to continue paying for web hosting, annual fees for the domain name and the software required to keep the website running.
The vast resources of my more than 250 ATIPs and FOIPs uncovered a lot of data and other gems that future researchers will need to battle the next wave of gun bans and firearm confiscations.
Christopher di Armani will ensure all of these resources remain online for those researchers.

[…] Young’s legacy does not end with his death, thankfully. At Dennis Young’s request, author and current events commentator Christopher di Armani took over responsibility for Dennis […]
I am praying for you Dennis. God bless you,
Thank you Dennis for everything you have done for the firearms community and for liberty for us all. Your courage and incredible tenacity in the face of overwhelming obstinacy are an inspiration to freedom lovers everywhere. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Dennis, it saddens me that you are going through this. You are a brave man who stands up for his beliefs. You are a Canadian patriot who has never swayed from his self appointed duty to support your country men’s rights. You didn’t have to do this, but you did because you knew it was the right thing to do. Thankfully your legacy will carry on, but you will be sorely missed.
Dennis, My thoughts and prayers, and that of the entire gun community, go out to you and your family. Your resolve to shine light on the darkness of our adversaries has been selfless and unwavering. And now is the time to focus that resolve on your personal adversary with which God is testing you. Never. Give. Up. I have come to know Christopher di Armani through numerous comment exchanges on his website articles as well as through email. I can think of no better person than Christopher to become your torch bearer and successor. He is the right man to… Read more »
Thank you, Dennis. Your service and dedication have been inspirational. I wish you and your family the very best.
My thoughts are with you, and thankyou for your determined resolve.
Hi Dennis, I am sorry to hear of your health issues and pray for a miracle to save your life. We lost our daughter to this terrible disease a few years ago and my wife is currently fighting it as well. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to the cause. It’s been a few years since the Granduc days. God bless you and make you well again.
God Bless and keep you and yours safe in His hand.
Best personal regards,
It has been great to have you as a CFD subscriber, Dennis. Your research and contributions have been the backbone of the CFD for a long time.
Hi Dennis, What I have to share with you is not a comment. I would like to talk to you through your e-mail if that’s alright with you. Thanks Dennis.
Thank you Dennis for all you have done. With out you the Firearms community would still be in the dark. Your endless pursuit of the truth has been a beacon of light on a ocean of darkness that the Liberal Government and the RCMP has kept us in. My Prayers are with you.
I wrote to you, 2 times, to give you hope and tell you that there is a cure for cancer but i never got an answer. You are so important and i value your work but the medical complex got you convince that there is no hope. Cancer cannot, i repeat CANNOT survive without sugar and a PH level that is perfect. Simple things can be done for everyone who wants to live. I do respect your choice and wish you the best.
Thanks for all your years of helping the firearms community. Wishing the best in your fight with cancer. God bless.
I’m sorry to hear of your health trouble and wish you all the best against the odds.
Thank you for your ongoing efforts to defend the rights of Canadians to bear arms against an army of bureaucrats and political traitors that want us to be defenceless.
A lot of people like me have gained a far better understanding of the firearms conundrum in this country than they ever could without your persistence and dedication in search of real data and information. We are truly grateful. I’m also sure that there are many more who are inspired by your courage and resilience in facing the grim reality of cancer. We’re all pulling for and with you.
Dennis, my personal thanks for all that you have done for the firearms community. I wish you the best, that you get well and I will keep you in my prayers. Take care and all the best.
Your work has been most inspiring and has helped me to continue to believe that things might change in a positive way. Without your work, none of this would have been possible.
I wish you the best possible outcome in your personal journey.
Thank you very much for everything you have done for our community. You have done a lot for all Canadians by delving into what is true, and not just accepting what is presented as ‘the truth’.
Sorry to hear of your failing health. Would like to thank you for all the great work you have done over the years. I do subscribe to Christopher already and I feel you picked the right person to take over. Once again Thank You
Thank you for your past efforts and God give you strength in your ongoing battle with cancer. People like you make a difference for some many others.
Wishing you the best in your battle!!
Besides honouring you for your tenacity in serving the firearms community, it has been my pleasure to be your friend for so many years.Your dedication to public service has been an splendid departure in a political world devoted to personal aggrandizement and enrichment. Beyond that, the guts with which you have dealt with your illness has been an object lesson to us all. I salute you!
We cannot thank you enough for everything you have dedicated your life towards in maintaining freedom and individual rights for all productive people. You are everything everyone should strive to be. We will never give up hope….
Dennis; Thank you for all you’ve done, I do hope you will be able to beat your villain. My heartfelt condolences with respect to your health. I do pray you are able to beat this nemesis you’ve been plagued with. Whatever happens be assured that the fight for rights and freedoms will continue. Please get well soon.
Dennis. A heartfelt thank you for all you have done for us. You are a blessing.
