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!

Mar13: Constitutional Challenge Deadline April 30th

News Archive Index
Date: March 13, 2006

Dear fellow supporters:

This is an exciting time for us right now, as we put together the formal Constitutional Challenge of the Firearms Act. We will be formally submitting our constitutional challenge to the courts by April 30th (Yes, I know that's on a Sunday, but that's the date the judge gave us!)

I'm writing this to ask for your input before the April 30th deadline. We all have a stake in this court case and therefore should also have a say. I think we are very close to covering all the constitutional issues relevant to the Firearms Act, but I don't want to miss any.

I have copied below the "Morton Summary" which outlines many of the areas of the constitution that the Firearms Act violates. What I am asking, is for you to let me know if there are any other issues that should be addressed before we formally submit our challenge. We want to make sure that we are truly speaking on behalf of all firearms owners in this country, and we would welcome your input.

I would also encourage you to pass this on to any pro-rights or shooting associations that might have some valuable input on this important issue as well. We've tried to reach as many groups as we could find (and almost all are supportive), but our list may not be complete. We would hate to see any group look back on this Constitutional Challenge and wonder why we didn't pursue certain constitutional issues. We want to make sure that everyone has a chance at input before the clock runs out.

Yours in Liberty,


"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and when the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." - Henry St. George Tucker, in Blackstone's 1768 "Commentaries on the Laws of England."
