North Battleford Mayor Ryan Bater took a few minutes at the start of a city council meeting Monday to express his sympathies for everyone involved surrounding the death of Colten Boushie.
He also spoke about the difficult trial process that took place over the past two weeks.
On Friday, a jury announced its verdict of not guilty in Gerald Stanley’s trial at Court of Queen’s Bench. Stanley had been facing a charge of second degree murder in the fatal shooting of Boushie, from Red Pheasant First Nation, on Stanley’s farm yard property in Aug. 2016.
