Bill C-68 Court Challenge
CCF Takes Montague Case | News | Sign-Up for email-updates | donate Donate
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!

Aug24-10: [Scrap C-68] Is it Possible to get a Fair Hearing in Canada?

Dear Supporters:

It's been a while since we've given an update on our case. We are still waiting for the decision from the Supreme Court of Canada to see if they will allow our appeal to be heard.

As I was sitting in prison after the ruling from the Ontario Court of Appeal I was very angry when I discovered that our courts do not have to have a reason for their judgments! This was news to me and took my right off guard. I'm a technical kind of guy who went in to court very confident of a win because we were armed with the facts that could not be disputed. Then I found out, the hard way, that the judges don't have to have a reason for their ruling; They can give a ruling "just because".

As I go through this "justice" experience I am more and more reminded at how subtle and powerful the forces of evil can be. Dr. Joe Gingrich who is on our case management team looked further into this phenomenon and found out some disturbing things about our "impartial" judges. Below is a shortened version of what he wrote on this subject.

Yours in Liberty,


Is it Possible for Firearms Owners to get a Fair Hearing in Canada?

Canadian firearms owners have felt the wrath of many organizations over the last 30 years. Such organizations as the Canadian Professional Police Association, the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, some health associations, some women's groups, the Coalition for Gun Control, major political parties and the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) have all unfairly shifted the blame of gun violence and the criminal misuse of firearms upon innocent, responsible Canadians who own firearms. These groups all have their own agendas for being involved in a large conspiracy to disarm Canadian gun owners under the guise of public safety. Usually one conspirator will make up a lie and have their co-conspirators disseminate it to the public as factual (read references 9 & 11 below). There exists a cleverly crafted 38 year collusion within the Canadian Bar Association and among its allies against one group of freedom-loving conscientious Canadians: the Canadian firearms community.

There has been long-held unsubstantiated feelings within the firearms community that the scales of the Canadian justice system were weighing against it. However, there was no tangible evidence that widespread legal unfairness was actively propagated towards them from within the justice system until May 26, 2010. It was then that the CBA presented their three page Letter to Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights, "Re: Bill C-391 - Repeal of Long-Gun Registry" to Garry Breitkreuz, M.P., Chair, Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security shown below (ref 9 &11). The surprise is that the bigoted CBA volunteered this information exposing themselves as to the extent and duration of their conspiracy against the Canadian firearms community. This "legal" organization has been allowed to unfurl anti-gun propaganda and support discriminatory laws upon a distinct group of 5 million blameless Canadian gun owners for decades. (10)

Canadian gun law violations are primarily tried by a judge, only a few with judge and jury. Since 1972 the CBA has been anti-gun. All judges were at one time lawyers, law students, and even "unpolished" students before reaching the bench. Our judges may have been impartial at one time until they were subjected to the antigun brain-washing propaganda along their journey toward the judiciary by the CBA. Two thirds of the lawyers in Canada (7) are members of the CBA, some even by law. Therefore, possibly as many as 2/3 or more of the Canadian judges on the bench are anti-gun and severely prejudiced against members of one specific minority group, the Canadian firearms community.

When a lawyer is appointed as a judge they must "rescind" their ties to the CBA. Does that mean Canadian judges, former lawyers and law students, whose open minds have been poisoned for decades by the CBA are now to become "impartial" judges? Do you believe they will recant their well etched prejudices towards members of the firearms community acquired by their previous years of affiliation with the CBA? This mind change is highly unlikely. Suspicions of biased judges sitting on the bench meting out harsh sentences for members of the Canadian firearms community, abound. "Judges must be and should appear to be impartial with respect to their decisions and decision making. Judges should disqualify themselves in any case in which they believe they will be unable to judge impartially. Judges should disqualify themselves in any case in which they believe that a reasonable, fair minded and informed person would have a reasoned suspicion of conflict between a judge's personal interest (or that of a judge's immediate family or close friends or associates) and a judge's duty."(2)

Where do members of the Canadian firearms community find impartial lawyers to represent them (1,7,8) and even more significantly, objective judges (2) and neutral courts of law (4)? - -They can not!

1. The CBA has maliciously poisoned the wells of justice within Canada since 1972 to the extent that anyone charged with an offence from within the firearms community would be unable to receive a fair trial (11). Remember, "The Canadian Bar Association is a national association representing over 37,000 jurists, including judges, lawyers, notaries, law teachers and law students across Canada." (3,4,5,6,7,8)

2. What remedies are expected for this miscarriage of justice? Primum non nocere. "First, do no harm." The extent of bias within the Canadian justice system is wide-spread towards members of the Canadian firearms community. Therefore, all legal proceedings against members of the Canadian firearms community must be STAYED on a national level. These individuals absolutely can not receive a fair trial within Canada. As part of the remedy, the govt. of Canada and the provinces must apologize to the Canadian firearms community for its ruthless brutal oppression of its most innocent, responsible, and trustworthy citizens. These governments must return, in a timely fashion, all the seized property and/or just compensation for such property where it has been destroyed and/or defaced. This includes any payments made by members of the firearms community for any government required licenses (firearms possession and acquisition licenses and/or firearms possession only licenses etc.)

Yours in Tyranny,
