Canada: Gerald Stanley acquittal angers indigenous groups

Canada’s federal government says it could the change way juries are chosen for criminal trials. This comes after an all-white jury made up of 12 people acquitted a white farmer of murder in the shooting death of a 22-year-old indigenous man.

Colton Boushie died after being shot in the head by Gerald Stanley, who said the gun misfired when he was defending his property, in the western province of Saskatchewan, against Boushie and his friends attempting to steal from him.
