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!

Sep29: Tactics Belong to Former Soviet Union

Not long after the Ottawa Sun's series on Canada's monumentally failed Firearms Act, I had the displeasure of reading about the plight of one unfortunate citizen who has run afoul of this law.

In an attempt to remedy he and his wife's situation and to expose the egregious infringements this law puts on the rights of good Canadians, Bruce Montague of Dryden Ontario launched a constitutional challenge to this law.

As a result, the Crown countered by using "proceeds of crime" measures intended for organized crime to initiate a seizure of the Montague home - - clearly bent on thwarting the Montague's ability to finance their court challenge.

Not only has the Firearms Act wasted billions of dollars with no impact on the criminal use of firearms, the government is now wasting its endless resources to harass and destroy the lives of its law-abiding citizens.

These police state tactics belong in the former Soviet Union.

Instead of taking the easy approach by harassing upstanding members of society, why don't Attorney General Michael Bryant and Crown Attorney James McKeachie put a little effort in dealing with the low-lifes who are shooting up the streets of Toronto?
