The trial for Stanley heard that Boushie, a 22-year-old from Red Pheasant Cree Nation, was shot in the head while he was sitting in an SUV that had been driven onto Stanley's farm near Biggar, Sask.

"Justice for Colten" rallies are planned in cities from Saskatoon to St. John's after the not guilty verdict in the shooting death of Colten Boushie sent shockwaves across the country. A jury in Battleford Court of Queen's Bench found Stanley not guilty on Friday.

Jade Tootoosis, wearing a hoodie bearing the words Justice for Colten, said she considered Mr. Boushie a brother, not a cousin, and that the year and a half since his death has been hard. "Indigenous people across this country are angry, they're heartbroken and I know Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians alike know that we have to do better", Mr. Trudeau said.
Sanchez urged people in the crowd to share their thoughts with one another.
"We will hold space and make space for the feelings".
The Boushie family hired its own lawyer and is raising money to pay legal and travel costs associated with the trial.
"When you look at the sweep of events leading up to this, there were complaints from farmers that no one was solving the crimes against property that was being stolen and destroyed in Saskatchewan", Ouellette said.
