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!

March 7, 2007 -- Dryden, Ontario

Local gunsmith Bruce Montague will enter arguments in Kenora's Superior Court Monday March 12th to potentially get him off a 10 year prison sentence.

"By challenging the validity of the firearms law itself, I'm asking the court to acknowledge that the law is criminal, not me" says Montague.

Montague and his wife Donna were charged in 2004 for their deliberate refusal to comply with firearms paperwork which they believe to be an unwarranted threat to their freedom, privacy and property.

Calvin Martin QC will be presenting the Montagues' arguments to Justice John Wright.

"After over a decade fighting Bill C-68 at all levels of government, we're excited to present a strong case to strike this expensive, ineffective and contradictory legislation off our books" said Martin.

"This is very costly and personally draining" says Donna Montague. "We really hope the courtroom will be packed with supporters demonstrating the concern of average citizens."

History, news and rationale of the Montagues' court battle is available at For comment, please contact Bruce Montague: (807) 937-2197 or Calvin Martin: (416) 922-5854.

Time and place for the hearing: Superior Court of Ontario, 216 Water Street, Kenora Ontario. Monday, March 12 at 2:00 PM
