Bill C-68 Court Challenge
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!

To the editor,

Within the last few years that I have been aware of the Canadian Unregistered Firearms Owners Association (CUFOA), not one of these members has committed a crime more serious than civil disobedience.

On the other hand we have an incident in the Vancouver area where police officers chose to raid a suspected drug dealer's home during a children's birthday party (which they were aware was taking place). During this raid Police shot the family dog in full view and close proximity to the children and it was the wrong house.

A Calgary police officer shot and killed a fellow officer and good friend because he did not follow proper safety protocols during an exercise at a range.

A female RCMP officer in Winnipeg fired her 9mm into a mirror in the washroom because according to the spokesman, it went off accidentally as she was placing it on the counter. Apparently she could not get her gunbelt back on because the gun was heavy. The fact that this particular firearm, a S&W double action only, will not go off unless you pull the trigger with substantial force appeared to be lost on both the spokesman and the media at the time. Practicing her draw in the mirror and failure to unload the firearm was the conclusion drawn by anyone familiar with this firearm.

A female officer in Niagara Falls discharged her firearm not once, but twice in the locker room of the station demonstrating she not only failed to properly unload her Glock, but she likely flinched at the first shot and thereby fired again.

A senior officer from the same force discharged his firearm in a negligent manner later that year. A newspaper article later appeared with the heading "Glock cleared" in which it was revealed that there was nothing wrong with the Glock's. If there was nothing wrong with the Glock then there was something wrong with the manner it was handled. This, however, appeared to be the end of the matter.

There have also been incidents of members of various police forces from Vancouver to Quebec losing their firearms from their cars while they were involved in other things from having lunch to exercising.

In Dryden Ont., Bruce Montague gets arrested at a gun show while purchasing a saddle for his 12 year old daughter. The gun show apparently deemed to be a safe place for a young girl as the police dragged her father off and left her alone. They later arrested Mrs. Montague when she came to the show to pick up her daughter. The daughter appears to have been left as bait to lure Donna out of the house.

In all the incidents involving police, no one was arrested or charged and in most, the officers were not even names, yet Bruce spent a week in jail and Donna 12 hours in custody and she was not allowed to return home for 36 hours while the police ransacked their home. Bruce and Donna now face charges for the commission of crimes far less than the ones committed by the police officers

Two Laws? What do you think?
