March for Colten Boushie to be held in Red Deer

March for Colten Boushie to be held in Red Deer

The jury had three possible verdict options: guilty of second degree murder, not guilty of murder but guilty of the lesser included offence of manslaughter, or not guilty. "Marches like this show that we are with those that suffer injustice, that don't have the voices that they should have had", said Waldo.

The chiefs said, Sutherland, confined to a wheelchair, was treated roughly when she was taken into police custody after going to a local shelter.

"We have questions and we want answers", she added. In the wake of the verdict, Boushie's family were understandably outraged.

The prayers don't call for revenge or harm for the Stanley family. "My heart cries today".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau echoed those sentiments in California, during a four-day trip to the U.S. "As a country we can and must do better - I am committed to working every day to ensure justice for all Canadians".

"As a country, we must and we can do better" - an echo of a tweet Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould sent after the verdict was delivered.

Yet if there had been Indigenous members on that jury in Battleford, Canadians would have had more confidence that they had just witnessed justice being done.

"The trial began with a jury selection process that reportedly excluded all potential Indigenous jurors by peremptory challenges".

The most rational of people can be irrational, caught up in the moment, go with the flow, be one with the crowd, then they feel remorse.

"If [Boushie] had been holding the gun, he would have been found guilty".

"So, lawyers can remove all women from a sexual assault trial, for example, through their use of peremptory challenge and we need to be careful of that".

Despite Iacobucci's findings, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled in R. v. Kokopenace (2015) that the Government of Ontario made "reasonable efforts" to compile a jury roll that included First Nations, and that they chose not to participate. "What I'm talking about is the broader discussion on jury reform and how the federal government can inject itself in jury reform", she said.

"This is what you get when you spend 150 years perpetuating genocide and continuing violent policies", Sinclair told Al Jazeera.

Other rallies for Colten Boushie were held across the country on Saturday.

An online fundraiser for the Boushie family had raised nearly $110,000 (over $138,000 Canadian) by Tuesday morning.

The perception, said Hall, comes from a lack of interaction with Indigenous peoples.

I can't imagine the grief and sorrow the Boushie family is feeling tonight. "Canada is Indian land - Indigenous land". "And that is exactly what we came here for", Tootoosis said. "We just hope that this change is a win for all of us". We want legislation to be changed.

To Jane Philpott, therefore, our justice system sucks.

Dionne also turned his ire on "social media haters", who he said have created an incendiary atmosphere with racist comments.

Kawennotas said the death of Colten Boushie in Saskatchewan brought back awful memories of the day her 13-year-old son was beaten by Montreal police while he was wearing a Warrior jacket.

With those stereotypes deeply embedded in the psyches of non-indigenous peoples in Saskatchewan and across Canada, Lafontaine said the trial made it clear that Stanley's supporters "see themselves" in the farmer.

"All funds raised will be going to the Stanley family, in an effort to help them recoup some of their lost time, property and vehicles that were damaged, harvest income, and sanity during this entire hard situation they have been dealing with over the past two years", reads the story section of the online fundraiser.

He went on to write that to be selected to serve on a jury, people must be completely impartial and he believes in this case they were. The reality of this verdict drags Canada's justice system out from behind the window dressing of reconciliation rhetoric and exposes real problems that we must urgently address together. "I felt like I need to protect my sons".

"I may grieve for some time. If the RCMP response time is delayed we will take matters in our own hands as we refuse to be a victim", the group's about me section states.
