Family friend and journalist Chris di Armani has posted this helpful
interview with Donna for those wondering about the Montagues' financial
Donna Montague and the Possible Seizure of her Home by the Ontario
I had a long talk with Donna Montague last night, and so far, the news
is good, if by good news you mean no news. So far there is no word from
the Ontario Attorney General's office regarding their forfeiture
application for the Montague family home under Ontario's Proceeds of
"This is all so unbelievable. These proceedings have revealed a
parliamentary and judicial system that is spinning out of control. They
can and will do whatever they choose. They do have the power! It upsets
me that they are not content with winning," she said.
"Now I'm praying he'll be home for Christmas. Bruce and I both hope
that now that they've won (the Supreme Court refused to hear the
Montague's appeal) they can show a little mercy and not completely and
utterly destroy us, by destroying our life's savings (the seized
property) and taking our home (proceeds of crime)."
When I told her there was a lot of talk on the internet forums and
newsletters about the possible house seizure and that people wanted to
know how to help, and that people wanted to support the family while
Bruce is in jail, she was silent for a moment.
"I have a job. Financially things are fine. The family bills get paid.
It's not a problem. Where we need help is if they decide they want to
take away my home. If people feel they want to help, please ask them to
contribute to the trust fund."
Donna was referring to the legal defense fund created after Bruce and
Donna were arrested in 2004.
> From the beginning the Montague family has refused donations to
themselves personally. I know. I've tried on occasion to help out
financially with the family bills.
"Put it in the trust fund or put it back in your pocket," was Bruce's
Tonight Donna's response was essentially the same. Put it in the trust
fund to help them fight the house seizure and to fight for the return of
all their property that was taken but had nothing to do with the case.
Both of those battles are yet to come, and lawyer Doug Christie is
working on a letter to Crown Counsel regarding the seized property already.
So if you want to help the Montague family out, the best way to do that
is to send your donation to:
