"Justice For Colten" Rallying Cry At Afternoon March

Posted on Monday, February 12, 2018 15:00 PM

Dozens of people braved bitterly cold conditions in downtown Kenora this afternoon to protest the verdict in the Colten Boushie Trial in
Saskatchewan.

Gerald Stanley was acquitted of second degree murder in the death of 22 year old Clayton Boushie, who was shot in the head almost two years ago near Biggar, Saskatchewan.

Tania Cameron was one of the organizers and says the idea of the rally came together quickly.

"Put a Facebook post out (Saturday) giving Kenora the heads up.  And it just took off from there.  The people were willing and able to give up their time, especially on a cold day, to stand up for the injustice of Colten Boushie."

Grand Council Treaty #3 says the verdict shows the need for Canada's justice system to be overhauled.
