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!

A judge in Kenora has thrown the book at gun registry challenger Bruce Montague. The former Dryden gunsmith was handed an 18 month prison sentence in Kenora court Tuesday morning.

Montague was found guilty in December on 26 of 53 charges involving gun licenses, after being arrested by police in late 2004. The charges included the unauthorized possession and careless storage of non-restricted firearms, explosives and restricted firearms. Montague's lawyer had been seeking a period of house arrest. The prison sentence includes a lifetime firearms ban.

Montague launched a constitutional challenge of the federal Firearms Act last October but his bid was rejected. He earlier said he would take his fight all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, no matter what sentence was handed down on Tuesday.

My comments to the Thunderbay source:

He did NOTHING to hurt anyone.. He was convicted of "Paper Crimes". To give a 'gunsmith', who has done NOTHING to hurt or threaten anyone, a 'lifetime' firearms ban is beyond punishment and borders on Government harassment.

Everyone of his 'paper' crimes was perfectly legal a few years ago, until paranoid, ignorant liberals, under pressure to "do something" about crime, started attacking the law abiding target shooters and hunters because they were too busy pandering to their criminal base of voters.

We don't have a Justice system in Canada, we have a revolving door Legal Industry that keeps putting REAL criminals back on the street where they can keep the wheels of this legal industry moving, and it just makes me sick!!!
