FOIP Fee Waiver Request: SOLGEN-A-2019-02470 – O.P.P Crime Gun Statistics 2008-2018 by Dennis R. Young – Aug 24, 2019. EXCERPT: “The RCMP, Public Safety Canada and Statistics Canada does not collect the data on crime guns I requested so the public has no where else to turn except to local and provincial police services for this important statistical information. The federal government no longer charges search and processing fees but that hardly matters if they don’t collect the statistics the Ontario public needs regarding the sources of crime guns to make better decisions about how best to combat the criminal use of firearms and protect both public and police safety.”

On July 25, 2017 Global News reported: Police are struggling with gun crime on the Queen City’s streets, and some people might find that the source of the firearms is closer than expected. “They’re not being brought in by the United States, in fact most of them are not even being brought across a border to come here. They’re coming from break and enters,” Regina Police Chief Evan Bray said.

RE: Waiving Solicitor-Client Privilege on High River Forced Entries Records Being Withheld By Dennis R. Young – August 20, 2019
EXCERPT: “You can start to repair this broken trust by making public the hundreds and hundreds of pages of records on the High River Forced Entries and rights violations withheld by your government using the solicitor-client privilege exemption.”
EXCERPT: In response to questions from the Globe, Chief Firearms Officer of Ontario Dwight Peer explained that police reporting policies around firearms-licence holders vary from force to force. But if a licence holder is reported to have sexually assaulted someone, he said that should, when coded correctly, trigger a notification to the CFO. The CFO can also receive calls from family, friends, neighbours or physicians who have concerns about a firearms-licence holder, he said. These concerns are then followed-up on a case-by-case basis. He declined to comment on whether they were notified in this case—or whether any review is being done.

Municipal Affairs FOIP Response – Missing Information Complaint by Dennis R. Young – August 5, 2019
EXCERPT #1: “In addressing the following part of your scope: “whether or not the corrective action restored trust in the RCMP among the High River residents who suffered the consequences of those mistakes”, the ministry did not locate any responsive records in their custody and/or control as the ministry would not undertake an assessment of the relationship between the RCMP and residents of High River. The actions taken by the RCMP in High River during the flood response and any resulting corrective actions that the RCMP may have taken in response to those actions would be under their jurisdiction and records relating to this matter should be requested from the RCMP.”
EXCERPT #1: Below is the link to the response I received from the Commissioner of the RCMP stating the Force is not interested in taking the steps necessary to rebuild trust in the RCMP among High River residents.
