Hundreds of people gathered this afternoon infront of Queen's Bench in Saskatoon to show solidarity and support for the family of Colten Boushie.
The rally comes a day after Saskatchewan farmer, Gerald Stanley was found not guilty in the 2016 shooting death of 22 year old Boushie. Several people came to make their voice heard in the case of racism within Saskatchewan. Saskatoon resident, Bryan Jordheim says "I've known this province has been racist since I was at least 20 years old, it's been under the surface but you always hear friends and relatives tell racist jokes." Jordheim says he showed up today to try and open people's minds up. Jordheim says what makes people human is their empathy and compassion. He says he came to show that others feel for the pain of others too. Others including rally supporter, Maybel Assiniboine says she came out as she says last night's decision by the jury was not right and not justice. Several other Canadian cities held their own rally in support of the Boushie family today. The cities include Toronto, Ottawa, Regina, Vancouver, Edmonton, and Victoria.
