"Indigenous people across this country are angry, they're heartbroken", he said.
He went on to say if the jury decides Stanley is guilty of manslaughter instead of the charge of second degree murder, if it finds him guilty, then the FSIN won't be satisfied with that. "We're praying for the best and hope the family gets what's coming".
Jury selection took place on January 29 in a Battleford community hall, followed by several days of testimony from eyewitnesses, family members, experts and Stanley himself.
The demonstrations were intending to honour Boushie, and serve as a day of action to show solidarity and support for the Boushie and Baptiste family, according to organizers. This is how they treat us First Nations people.
"This is what truth and reconciliation is all about". Saskatchewan had more of the notorious schools than any other province, which both the commission and Sunchild blame for destroying indigenous families for generations. "I'm not saying that Indian people deserve a break because we've been victimized".
The area is also an outlier on crime.
Auto theft is common, and farmers in the sparsely settled region complain about agonizingly slow wait times for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to arrive. Stanley is Caucasian. Boushie is Cree.
"He said the jury has been reviewing the evidence, "...and frankly whatever verdict the jury comes up with in this case I believe ... it will be a reasonable verdict".
After the group left the river, they got a flat tire and then drove onto a farm 15 kilometres northeast of Stanley's farm, where at least one person attempted to steal a truck by hitting the truck window with a.22-calibre rifle that was in the back of the SUV.
Boushie's family has said they will push for an appeal.
"It's a awful feeling to hear not guilty", he told reporters outside the court.
The police force declined to comment.
While the defence and prosecution agreed that Stanley, who is white, was holding the pistol that shot Boushie, the defence lawyer described it as a "freak accident" that happened when the gun went off unexpectedly.
Stanley testified during the trial and said he did not mean to shoot anyone. He said he was trying to turn off the engine of the vehicle the men were driving while holding the pistol when the fatal bullet fired in what he testified was a complete surprise.
For Tootoosis, the social-media hatred prompted by the killing of her cousin may also prove to be his legacy.
After speaking with Wilson-Raybould, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted: "I can't imagine the grief and sorrow the Boushie family is feeling tonight". "It's brought to light such a divide, and the question now isn't what is the government going to do about it, what are the courts going to do about it?" But I wasn't shocked that was going to be the verdict.
