School inspector.

Born in St. Rose, Lower Canada [now Quebec], he was bilingual. He was wounded at Batoche in 1885 and, in 1893, was appointed school inspector for the eastern part of Manitoba. He was charged with dealing with the Franco-Manitobans who were offended by the Greenway legislation of 1890, and especially with reconciling them to the Laurier-Greenway Compromise after 1897. Young retired in 1925. He died at Winnipeg on 13 July 1928 and was buried in the Elmwood Cemetery.
