"Murderer!" cried in court as Stanley found not guilty

Gerald Stanley found not guilty in 2016 fatal shooting in Saskatchewan

The Court of Queen's Bench jury began deliberating Thursday and returned a verdict Friday evening.

Gerald Stanley, 56 testified that he fired warning shots to scare the group off. On Friday, the defendant was found not-guilty by an all-White jury.

"A lot of them can't believe it, what came out as a verdict", said a visibly emotional Chief Daniel Starchief of Mosquito First Nation, who spoke on behalf of all BATC bands including Red Pheasant reserve, of which Boushie was a band member. She said she wasn't surprised by the verdict because there weren't any Asian, Indigenous or black people on the jury.

"Go to hell, Gerald Stanley", she said.

"We are standing united against violence, against racism and against injustice", North said. Many are calling for an inquiry and changes to the jury selection process.

Lindsey Batt was one of the protestors who gathered yesterday. Other protests were held across the country.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also expressed his condolences to Boushie's family.

"Colten Boushie will never be back with us".

Sinclair, best-known for championing reconciliation between Canada and Indigenous peoples, was not alone.

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

Speakers at the Vancouver rally included Indigenous advocate Lorelei Williams and First Nations hip-hop artist Ronnie Dean Harris, who called on non-Indigenous people to "stand up". "It is now more important than ever that we continue to demonstrate consideration, patience and understanding for one another", Mr. Moe said.

"At the root of all of this, with Colten Boushie, with Barbara Kentner, is the anti-Indigenous racism that feeds that violence and the justification for the violence against Indigenous people". Mr. Clark said this is a defining moment for this community and this country. "What I said (when he heard it) was it was unbelievable but very believable". Saskatchewan had more of the notorious schools than any other province, which both the commission and Sunchild blame for destroying indigenous families for generations. But her heart was touched to see the support for Boushie across the country today, she said. "Let's talk about justice".

He added, "What would you do, and what would you expect justice to do?" "Enough. We're going to fight back", Debbie Baptiste told a crowd of roughly 100 people, some of whom carried signs reading Indigenous Lives Matter.

"We didn't want more here. No family should have to endure what we had to go through".

Court heard Stanley fired three shots after an SUV pulled into his farmyard near Biggar, Sask., the night of August 9, 2016 and that the death was accidental.

"I had a telephone conversation (along with) Jade, and Alvin and the rest of the family, just 10 minutes ago", Cameron said.
