This financial report is badly out-of-date, but we'll leave it up for historical interest. Since April 16, 2013 all donations for the Montagues' defense should be directed to the
Canadian Constitution Foundation.
The estimate cost of this case is over $300,000.oo. Please help raise support by forwarding the cause along to other concerned Canadians.

You may have noticed a significant change in way we are now reporting our numbers and I'd like to explain it.
In the past the "total funds raised to date" included money or value we received from supporters by way of direct assistance. For instance we have a very good local supporter who buys all the air fare tickets for the lawyer's trips to court. This is a real $ donation but never actually enters or leaves our bank account but we felt it should be reflected in our fundraising charts. So far things look pretty simple, right? - - Wrong!
We now have many supporters contributing in many ways. Our local stationer store even waived our bills for having flyers and letterhead made up for us! But the real confusing part (as far as keeping our accounting reports) comes in when people donate their time and expertise to help out with things like our website fees and maintenance, promotional DVD videos, accounting services and travel time and expenses for our legal team.
We very much appreciate the direct "non-monetary" donations we have received and still continue to receive, but it's starting to make our finances a little more difficult to "account" for. To make things look a little clearer (we hope), we have decided to chart only the actual dollars we receive and list the direct contributions by supporters under a separate area. This area will show both the real money they spent combined with an estimate to reflect the value of their donated time and expertise.
Yours in Liberty,
