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!

Thank-you Letter to Supporters

Date: Oct 22, 2004

Dear supporters:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your contribution to the Bruce Montague Scrap C-68 Fund. I want to emphasize here that this is not just my fight, this is OUR FIGHT. None of the money donated goes to me or my family. I gain nothing from this, other than my peace of mind. I'm just part of a team trying to help make a difference in this country. Your donation makes YOU part of that team also.

This is exciting. This is the first chance we've had in ten years to seriously challenge this law. Some sacrifices had to be made in order to get the police to lay the right charges, and there will be some bad press to deal with, but I hope that my supporters can see through some of the inflammatory statements made and realize the principles that are at stake.

I can only assure you that despite the character assassinations attempted on me, I have done nothing criminal, I don't have a criminal record, and there are no victims. MY ONLY ALLEGED "CRIME" IS PURELY PAPERWORK IN NATURE. I want to make sure you are aware that MY CHARGES ARE THE RESULT OF AN INTENTIONAL EFFORT TO CHALLENGE THE LAW. In other words I'm not a crook that got "caught in the act". This was very much a "leap of faith" on the part of the CUFOA executive (of which I'm one) to try to get one of us arrested with the right charges to challenge this law. We believe strongly enough that we are right, that we put our own necks on the line, with the belief that the rest of the firearms community would rally up with the financial support needed to win this fight in the courts.

We have to encourage all the people who "talk up a big storm" about how bad this law is, to "ante up". It's time for firearms owners to put their money where their mouth is. THIS WILL BE A PIVOTAL CASE THAT EITHER STRENGTHENS THE FIREARMS ACT OR REPEALS IT (at least a good chunk of it). LET'S MAKE SURE WE ARE ON THE WINNING SIDE!

I HAVE A CHALLENGE FOR YOU which I hope you can take to heart. We need to make sure that all the firearms owners in this country are made aware of this legal challenge, and then motivate them to support this fight (remember it's not just my fight, it's OUR fight). If you can spread the word to only ten firearms owners and get them to commit to at least $100, we will be well on our way to a serious charter challenge, right up to the supreme court of Canada!

Keep in mind, that if a charter challenge is lost, it can never be looked at again by our courts. WE ONLY GET ONE CHANCE AT THIS CHARTER CHALLENGE; LET'S MAKE IT A GOOD ONE!

Check out the growing web site ( which is maintained by supporters to provide background and up-to-date information on this case.

I thank you again for your generous donation. With your prayers and support, my family and I will try to remain strong and true to the principles of this legal challenge. This is something that can't be done alone. It takes teamwork.

Yours in Liberty,

Bruce Montague.
