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!

Sep22: OPP Searches Montague Home Second Time

News Archive Index
Date: Sept 22, 2004

Not content with the results of their first search of Bruce Montague's home, the OPP requested and was granted a second search warrant for the Montague residence.

Bruce Montague remained in jail, his release blocked by police and crown prosecutor Peter Keen. Ongoing negotiations between Keen and Montague's lawyer, Ed Burlew, went on all day.

Ontario Provincial Police believed Bruce still had firearms in his possession. Their initial warrant was valid for 48 hours, although Donna was allowed back into her home after 36 hours.

CUFOA's Ed Hudson explains: "They claim to have registration slips for firearms they did not recover in the first search. They also believe Bruce is in possession of prohibited firearms. They executed a second search warrant last night."

Donna Montague and her family were forced from their home a second time. This warrant was valid for 24 hours. Once again, Donna Montague was not given a copy of the search warrant, nor was she even allowed to see it.

Police apparently were not satisfied with the results of their second search.

Hudson said Bruce Montague was cooperating with police, and as a result of that cooperation was released at 4:30pm from the Sioux Lookout jail cell where he had been transferred to the previous day.

Bruce Montague is home tonight with his family for the first time in 10 days. He is happy to be spending time with his loved ones and will deal with the press in a few days.
