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!

Feb 25, 2010: Montague Appeal Decision Released

News Archive Index

Today the Ontario Court of Appeal released its decision on the Montague appeal, which was heard just last week on February 18, 2010.

The court paved the way for an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, dismissing the constitutional "right" to firearms ownership, and ruling that alleged errors in the trial were not at issue.

The ruling by justices Moldaver, Cronk and MacPherson answers issues raised in the appeal and can be read in full here:

Bail conditions required Bruce Montague to surrender himself into custody prior to the decision's publication, where he remains pending a renewed bail application.

Donna Montague expressed shock and disbelief that the entire appeal was dismissed. "The judges seemed to be challenging seriously the crown's arguments during the hearing."

Montague was unavailable for comment. Pending consultation with his lawyer, he will evaluate the next step in this Firearms Rights court challenge, which is to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Anticipating the likelihood of appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, the Montagues deserve our support more than ever.
