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!

PRESS RELEASE : Firearms Activist Prepares to Dismantle Firearms Act in Court!

Toronto lawyer Calvin Martin will be arguing the constitutionality of the flawed Canadian Firearms Act October 16-20 in the Superior Court in Kenora, Ontario.

The stakes are high. If Mr. Martin succeeds, Canada's gun laws will be gutted. If he fails, firearms activist Bruce Montague could face over ten years in prison and millions of Canadian firearms owners, not currently in compliance with federal firearms laws, will have to decide what to do next.

Given the Crown's actions in this case the decision may not be pre-ordained. Stalling and intimidation tactics escalated to seizing the family home in an attempt to deny the Montagues the money they need to fight against a government legal team paid for out of the deep pockets of the Canadian taxpayer.

Who: Bruce and Donna Montague, Calvin Martin QC, Government of Canada

What: Constitutional Challenge to Canada's firearms laws

Why: Millions of firearms owners have chosen civil disobedience rather than surrender to Canada's firearms laws; Bruce Montague was charged for his non-compliance.

When: October 16 to October 20, 2006.

Where: Superior Court, Kenora, Ontario.
