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"
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
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."
