CCF Takes Montague Case | News | Sign-Up for email-updates | donate Donate
This Case Epilogue written February 1, 2017 is intended to provide context to this web site as it documents a Canadian constitutional challenge spanning from 2004 to 2016. Bruce Montague determined to expose the constitutional violations in the Canadian Firearms Act. After being charged, mounting a constitutional challenge and appealing to the Supreme Court of Canada, Montague's case was dismissed without reasons. With Bruce in jail, the Montagues then faced an another twist of injustice -- the confiscation of their home and property by the Ontario government. The Montagues fought the civil forfeiture of their home for years until, in the summer of 2016, the Canadian Constitution Foundation was instrumental in negotiating with the Ontario Civil Forfeiture department to drop the lien against the Montague home. The Canadian Constitution Foundation deserves our support as they continue to fight other cases of injustice around the country. YOU COULD BE NEXT! Canada is undergoing a quiet revolution and your fundamental rights and freedoms are at stake!

Government Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds

On January 1, 2003, Bruce Montague was one of 10 individuals standing on Ottawa's Parliament Hill demanding he be arrested for violating the Firearms Act.

Since that time Montague and others have publicly and consistently demonstrated against the Firearms Act. The government has steadfastly ignored their demands to be charged for publicly violating that Act.

The absurdity of an "investigation" and "search" of his home is beyond description. Bruce Montague would have welcomed the "inspectors" into his home and gunsmithing business at any time. He would have happily showed them where each unregistered and unlicensed firearm lay.

This prosecution (persecution, if you prefer) proves only one thing. The government does NOT like looking bad. Or being made to look bad. So they have to prove a point. They toss Bruce in jail, arrest and threaten his wife, then spend 36 hours searching the Montague family home.

Bruce Montague is hardly a "flight risk", yet he sits in a jail cell awaiting a bail hearing despite the fact his only "crime" is one Ottawa manufactured.

No, Bruce Montague sits in jail because of his political beliefs. The government is doing its utmost to "silence dissent" on its fatally flawed Firearms Act. We good citizens of this nation cannot allow this to continue.

Amazingly, the Canadian government publicly and vehemently decries it when other nations treating their citizens in this manner.

Apparently, the Canadian Government's hypocrisy knows no bounds.
