Gerald Stanley found not guilty of second degree murder

The family of a young Indigenous man that was shot in rural Saskatchewan is speaking out after the white farmer who pulled the trigger was found not guilty of second degree murder.

22-year-old Colten Boushie was shot in the back of the head after he and a group of others drove onto Gerald Stanley’s property.

Boushie’s family had previously expressed concern that the deck was stacked against them during the court process.

Following the verdict, his uncle Alvin Baptiste called for change.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the call at a news conference in Los Angeles.
