Federal Ministers Comment on Meetings with Colten Boushie’s Family

Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott and Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett speak to reporters in Ottawa about their meetings with the family of Colten Boushie, the 22-year-old Indigenous man who was fatally shot in 2016 by a white farmer in Saskatchewan. Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale also speak to reporters about their upcoming meetings with the Boushie family.

Boushie was shot after he and four other young people drove onto Gerald Stanley’s farm. Last week a jury found Stanley not guilty of second-degree murder, a verdict that led to demonstrations across Canada and calls for change to the jury selection process. (February 12, 2018) (no interpretation)
