Vigil scheduled for Colten Boushie


The man charged, has been cleared in his death.

Meanwhile, rallies and vigils are planned across the country in support of Boushie's family - including in Saskatoon and Regina.

Native groups and supporters came out Friday night to Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square to protest the not guilty verdict for Gerald Stanley in the shooting death of Colten Boushie in Saskatchewan. Some family members restrained her. Others wailed or screamed at the jury.

Colten Boushie's mother Debbie Baptiste addresses demonstrators gathered outside of the courthouse in North Battleford, Sask., on Saturday, February 10, 2018.

"Many, if not all Indigenous people across Turtle Island have been watching that case", said Amanda Rekunyk, who is organizing a vigil in front of Halifax's Spring Garden Road courthouse Saturday evening.

"I am listening, our government is listening, and it is important that we continue to listen to the many voices involved in this discussion".

Stanley was charged with second-degree murder after Boushie died from a gunshot to the head during an altercation on August 9, 2016.

"We've always known as Indigenous leaders that this was their system", said Chief Tony Alexis of the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation, saying the system was set up by those who colonized Canada. All were consuming alcohol.

Evidence presented at the trial showed that the group in the vehicle, while driving on a flat tire, had tried to steal a auto at another farm before going to the Stanleys.

The SUV was eventually driven onto Stanley's farm.

Stanley's son testified that he and his father heard an ATV start up and they thought it was being stolen.

The defence argued in its final summation that there was no evidence that Stanley meant to kill Boushie. A bullet entered below Boushie's left ear and exited on the right-hand side.

In his closing arguments, Spencer told the jury what happened to Boushie was a "tragedy" but they had to put themselves in Stanley's shoes.

Stanley testified in court that after firing two warning shots, he realized he couldn't see his wife and was filled with a feeling of "pure terror" that she might be under the SUV. He said the fatal shot occurred when he reached into the SUV to grab the keys out of the ignition and his gun "just went off".

Stanley's supporters have used the episode to call for US -style "stand your ground" self-protection laws. The legal system has failed him, and our hearts are with his family, Red Pheasant First Nation and the people of Saskatchewan.

At a later news conference with the Boushie family, FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron was visibly angry about the result. The defence challenged all visibly Indigenous potential jurors. A Facebook group, Farmers With Firearms, appeared after Boushie's death to call for allowing citizens to arm themselves, and to support Stanley's actions.

Minister of Justice Jody Wilson-Raybould, said she was "committed to working every day to ensure justice for all Canadians".
