Anger. Frustration. Rage. Sadness. All things expressed after the decision on February 9, 2018 that Gerald Stanley, a farmer from Saskatchewan, was found not guilty in the death of Colten Boushie, a First Nation man from Red Pheasant Cree Nation. Rosanna Deerchild, host of CBC Radio One’s Unreserved, speaks with members of the Indigenous community including professor Niigaan Sinclair, culture columnist Jesse Wen, and activist Erica Violet Lee about the ramifications of this decision on the relationship between Indigenous people and the rest of Canada.
