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!

Nov9: Open Letter to Prime Minister Martin on Remembrance Day

Letters Index

"Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The Torch; be yours to hold it high."

Tuesday, 09 November 2004

The Right Honourable Paul Martin
Prime Minister of Canada
Office of the Prime Minister
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa K1A 0A2

Dear Prime Minister,

Re: Armistice Day 2004

My great-uncle returned from France in 1919 with his lungs forever incapacitated from choline gas. My father taught me to observe a moment of silence on "the eleventh day of the eleventh month" each year on Armistice Day to honour the defenders of our freedom long before I knew what "armistice" meant. Later in school I learned Major McCrea's great poem which exhorted us that "The Torch" was now ours, "to hold it high." As a responsible citizen I have tried hard to live those inspiring words, believing in the ultimate goodness of mankind and in the reliable justness of good government.

Regrettably as Remembrance Day approaches this year and we are once again urged to "take up the quarrel" we must recognize a very serious and deeply disturbing fact. The "foe" with whom we now must contend is your Liberal government.

In passing the Firearms Act your Liberal government is attempting to usurp the Rights and Freedoms which two generations of Canadian men and women fought and died to protect. In two world wars hundreds of thousands of Canadians suffered unimaginable hardships to preserve and defend what your Liberal government is now trying to destroy with this unjust, unconscionable law.

Mr Prime Minister, before you continue to make a mockery of Remembrance Day and further desecrate our Canadian dead, repeal the Firearms Act.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely signing, fly
scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The Torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.

Major John McCrae, Ypres, 1915
