"Murderer!" cried in court as Stanley found not guilty

Colten Boushie died Aug. 9 2016. Gerald Stanley is charged with second-degree murder in his death

"We are extremely angry, sickened and disturbed with these results and changes need to be made", said BATC Representative Neil Sasakamoose, in the release.

The case ignited deep-seated racial tension in Saskatchewan between indigenous peoples and white communities.

Similar rallies and marches took place across Canada in response to public outrage over the verdict and an overnight social-media campaign that swept the nation in response.

"If Canada and Saskatchewan are serious about reconciliation, we want more than words and tears, we want action", said Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) vice-chief David Pratt.

"This is a reminder walk, a reminder to this country that we are still here". We are here and we are not going anywhere.

On Friday, a jury acquitted him of the second-degree murder charge, sparking protests and calls for justice reform across the country.

The 56-year-old farmer from Biggar was portrayed as protecting his property with a gun that he claimed fired accidentally, while Boushie, 22, was described as a threat in a vehicle full of would-be thieves despite court being told he was asleep.

Many couldn't understand how the verdict could have been reached.

"I felt a deep sense of heartbreak and deep sense of rage", said Khelsilem, who only uses one name, one of those at the Vancouver demonstration. "And I'm concerned about the inequality".

The rankings could certainly change before the field of 68 is selected on March 11 with more than 1,000 games yet to be played. Arizona (20-6, 10-3) has losses to Washington and UCLA the past two weeks.

Patti Doyle-Bedwell, Mi'kmaq woman and professor of Indigenous Studies at Dalhousie University, said the verdict was "a sad day for justice in this country".

National chief of the Assembly of First Nations Perry Bellegarde tweeted - "We will never give up on justice for First Nations in Saskatchewan or anywhere else in Canada", while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted out condolences to the Boushie family.

"Last night we were denied justice for his death".

- Jesse Wente (@jessewente) February 10, 2018if canada were to admit that gerald stanley - a white settler farmer - killing a young nêhiyaw man is "murder", they would have to admit their nation is founded on genocide. this is what colonialism is.it is murder.

"My first reaction was that could have been me - when I think about my life and the situations I was in at the same age that Colten was when he died", said Manitoba NDP Leader Wab Kinew.

"This is very emotional for a lot of people and it's important to take time to recognize why people are mad".

"You can't have even that kind of appearance in our justice system", he said. "No family should have to endure what we had to go through". Listen to the difficulties we have. In a second it can happen to you. She appears to have foreshadowed change when she released a statement after the jury was selected. "We're going to pray, we're going to smudge, we're going to offer tobacco, really be together as a community in this emotional time", she said.
