Dear Minister Bryant;
Re: Bruce and Donna Montague
I am dumfounded to learn an Order was filed by Crown Counsel James McKeachie,
in the Ontario Superior Court at Kenora placing a Crown lien on the Montague's residence.
I am sure this type of procedure was enacted to deal with organized crime and the proceeds of crime. As I understand it Mr. Montague is an honest family man with no criminal record who is simply challenging what he and many believe to be a very bad law. How could this process possibly apply to his situation?
If you were personally unaware of this procedure being undertaken against the Montagues I sincerely hope you will you now intervene and correct what appears to be a terrible abuse of a process which was clearly intended for other purposes?
In the unlikely event that you were aware and sanctioned this undertaking would you please do me the courtesy of explaining to me how this civil process is interpreted to apply in a situation such as the Montague’s?
I like many are watching this case closely. A Supreme Court ruling will profoundly affect Bill C68 and every lawful firearm owner in Canada. We expect your Ministry to play its part in this challenge in a lawful professional fashion not to resort to what appear to be underhanded deceitful and cowardly methods to deny the Montagues access to the equity in their home or worse, just to punish them for daring to take on the state.
This wrong needs to be righted as soon as possible.
I look forward to your reply.
