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!

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ Index

These are common-sense answers to some common questions.

Q: Why is this challenge so important?
A: Unless the Conservatives win a majority government, they may not be able to keep their promise to repeal the firearms act. Besides being our best opportunity to repeal the act, this court challenge may offer the clearest legal argumentation needed to reinforce firearms rights in Canada.

Q: Why appeal to the supreme court when we know it's been stacked by the Liberal government?
A: From Bruce Montague: I've been asked this question many times over the years. My answer basically boils down to my conviction to stand on principle even if it does look hopeless. I can't sleep well at night when I allow injustices like Bill C-68 to go unchallenged. Figting Bill C-68 is a duty I feel compelled to do, even if it does mean failure. I am prepared to "sacrifice" myself, if necessary, just for my peace of mind. In the end I will know, AT LEAST I TRIED !!!
On the other hand, I am hopeful that enough people will wake up to what is going on (and donate to this cause) that even a stacked supreme court can't ignore the case we will present to them.
This case will likely either reinforce the firearms act (bill C-68) or repeal it. The outcome will depend largely on the support we get from fellow firearms owners.

Q: Why store dynamite in your freezer?
A: Dynamite is a necessary tool for removing rocks, stumps and beaver dams in remote areas. Frozen dynamite is very insensitive so storing dynamite in a freezer is both safe and obscure from thieves.

Q: Why store your firearms in a secure and obscure room?
A: Responsible firearms owners employ safes and obscurity to secure their firearms against theft. Canadian gun laws will result in more firearms owners being victimized by criminals: first, government registration lists could leak into the wrong hands, and second, criminals know that owners are easy targets due to "safe storage" restrictions.
