A jury's verdict in Saskatchewan is prompting rallies across the country. National Chief Perry Bellegard of the Assembly of First Nations is calling for reforms of the justice system, after a farmer was found not guilty in connection with the death of a First Nations youth.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott and Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett have expressed their condolences to the family after the loss of 22-year-old Colten Boushie.
Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said Boushie's death was 'tragic,' but he said the justice system must be free of political intervention.
A rally in support of Colten Boushie's family is set for tomorrow noon in Kenora. It's expected to start at the court house and make its way to MP Bob Nault's office in the Bannister Building.
