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!

Former Dryden-area Gunsmith Bruce Montague has been sentenced to a total of 18-months in prison after being found guilty on a variety of firearms related offences.

Justice John Wright had some harsh words for Montague this morning as he delivered his sentence.

The judge described Montague as stubborn and tenacious to a fault who acted foolishly by making automatic weapons.

The toughest sentence was for converting semi-automatic guns into automatic weapons.

Justice Wright said he wanted to send a message that such activities are "verboten".

Montague was also handed sentences ranging from 6-months to a year for the various charges he was found guilty of, but all will be served concurrently.

Bruce's Wife Donna was given 6-months probation for owning a firearms without a license.

Montague's Lawyer, Doug Christie says he plans to appeal the decision in Ontario Court of Appeal Wednesday and will also be asking for bail for his client so he can be free while the appeals process is on-going.
