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!

Dec7: Ontario calls for tougher gun laws (with response)

Source: CBC Online

Premier Dalton McGuinty said Tuesday that the federal government needs to go farther in its crackdown on gun crimes.

The premier said tougher penalties are required if the problem of the new gun culture is to be addressed. The federal justice minister had introduced legislation increasing mandatory minimums for gun crimes, but that effort died on the order paper due to the election.

"I think if you were found to be in possession of a handgun, you should be subject to some very serious consequences," said McGuinty. "Otherwise, we are not going to be able to do what we need to do in order to ensure there is more safety on Ontario streets."

McGuinty says the discretion given justices-of-the-peace and judges in allowing people charged with gun crimes to get bail, also needs to be tightened by Ottawa.

To the Editor,

Good old Dalton McGuinty is jumping on the bandwagon, screaming for "tougher" gun laws. What a hypocrite. Gun laws are plenty tough enough - if they were being properly enforced! Bail Court and Provincial Court Judges are appointed directly by the Ontario Attorney General. McGuinty and Bryant should be reading the riot act to these bozos and telling them to smarten up and start imposing meaningful penalties and bail restrictions, if not oppositions, to these criminals.

Not only was Jodie Wheatle out on bail for a previous gun crime, he managed to get yet another gun, illegally, with which to commit this new crime! Surely his bail conditions imposed a firearms prohibition on him. But of course, firearms prohibitions aren't tracked by the Firearms Registry - only law abiding citizens are.

We don't need gun control, we need Liberal control - Kick The Rascals Out!
