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!

Oct15: Preparing to finish our constitutional challenge of the Firearms Act

Dear Supporters:

It's that time again where we prepare for battle in the court room. Next Monday October 22nd in the Superior Court of Ontario we continue with our arguments declaring much of the Firearms Act (Bill C-68) unconstitutional and therefore invalid law. We are specifically challenging the licensing scheme (PAL, or firearms license) because of how it violates our right to posses and use firearms.

Our new lawyer Doug Christie has spent the summer (even during his vacation) getting up to speed on what the issues and arguments are. Our whole case management team is very pleased with Mr. Christie's comprehension of the basic principles at stake and his clear and articulate way of expressing our views. We anticipate that next week our arguments will finally get brought forward to Justice Wright in the most compelling way. We also expect that the hearing will conclude next Friday so that the judge can consider our arguments and render a decision.

I should also mention that financial assistance is still needed in this fight. I mentioned in my previous newsletter that Dave Tomlinson, president of the NFA, passed away. Dave was heavily involved in this case and the NFA has been paying for much of the expenses incurred during our court hearings. Unfortunately, now that Dave is gone the NFA is understandably going through some readjustments and may not be able to continue helping us out financially as they did in the past. Expenses are quite high during our week in court, and any extra help you can spare would be much appreciated.

This has been a long road for everyone involved in this case. All these obstacles that we've had to overcome over the past four years can be tiring at times, both on us and you. Fortunately we have been blessed to have the perseverance to continue on in our fight despite these obstacles. I also want to make sure you are aware of my gratefulness for all of you who have pitched in with moral and financial support. God bless you all.

I highly encourage your attendance in court next week if at all possible. For those wishing to attend, the hearing is slated to last the whole week starting October 22 at 10:00 am. The hearing will be held at the Kenora Superior Courthouse, 216 Water St.

Yours in Liberty,


Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. - Calvin Coolidge, Past President of the United States.
