The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) says it continues to stand with the Colten Boushie family after learning there would be no appeal filed on Gerald Stanley’s acquittal.

The FSIN issued a statement Wednesday evening saying their executive was “angered” with the announcement yesterday from Saskatchewan Justice.

A jury acquitted Gerald Stanley Feb. 9 after his two-week second-degree murder trial at Court of Queen’s Bench in Battleford. The charges stemmed from the fatal Aug., 2016 shooting of 22-year-old Colten Boushie a resident of Red Pheasant Cree Nation.

Yesterday, Boushie’s mother Debbie Baptiste said she will continue her quest for justice.

“It isn’t over,” Baptiste said in a statement. “We are going to keep fighting for justice for my son.”
