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!

Feb14-2013: Appeal Date Set

News Archive Index

Dear Supporters:

We finally have an appeal court date set for Tuesday June 18, 2013. This will be held at the appeal court in Toronto but I don't yet know which court room.

This appeal is trying to overturn the court order to have most of my gun collection destroyed. There is roughly $100,000 worth of firearms that I have collected over the past 30 years. This represents the bulk of my savings as I approach retirement and we are desperately trying to get the court to agree that I should be able to at least sell these firearms. None of these firearms were involved in any crimes. They were merely part of my collection as I protested the gun laws by not renewing my license or registering my guns. There doesn't appear to be any rational reason for why they should be destroyed.

On a further note, my wife and I would like to thank you all for continuing to support this fight even though we lost the constitutional challenge. This fight has become much more personal as we struggle to remain solvent in the aftermath of our charter challenge. I guess that is the whole point isn't it? The government wants to send a clear message to all of you, that if you try to stand up for your rights by peacefully protesting an unjust law, they will not only tell the court to rule against you but they will make sure the rest of your life is ruined!

Thanks again for your support in this fight that is now so personal. It's wonderful to have such dedicated support! Who knows, if we win it may set a precedent that will help other gun owners in the future?

Yours in Liberty,
