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!

Sep16: The choice is yours

More than one individual is wondering why so much time and money has gone into the arrest of a Dryden gunsmith and his wife, when this individual has literally served himself up on a platter for the past two years.

The questions, "why now?" and "why with so much hoopla?" seem to be on the tip of many individuals' tongues - and for good reason.

It's not like Bruce Montague wouldn't have gone quietly and willingly - he probably would have taken police on a guided tour of his home - so why did we have to tie up so much money in a multi-taskforce effort that, no doubt, involved weeks of investigation and thousands of dollars?

One old-timer said he was sure glad that all the crimes and criminal activity in Northwestern Ontario have been put to bed, since the police obviously have a great deal of extra time and cash on their hands to be wasting on law-abiding citizens who don't like what government is doing.

Others might argue that Montague is not 'law-abiding' because he's not following the new gun laws... but how many of you are there reading this right now who haven't followed those laws?

Answer honestly.

How many laws have you broken if it came right down to a surprise search of your home? What do you have in your gun cabinet? Where have you been surfing on the Internet? What did you bring back from your last trip out of the country?

Most people wouldn't even realize how many laws they were breaking.

Others say they know a bad law when they hear it and insist that they have to do something to impress upon government that they will not surrender rights and freedoms that bureaucrats decide they don't need anymore. Some just say they aren't interested in dishing out well over two billion for a system that will not work.

So now, as Canadian citizens, you can decide if it's time to sanitize your home - just in case - or see to it that you retain those rights and freedoms you hold dear.

I suspect most of you have already begun cleaning out your closet.
