The Federation of the Sovereign Indigenous Nations are unhappy with the current jury selection in the Colten Boushie case.
Out of the 12 men and women selected to decide the fate of Gerald Stanley, none are Indigenous.
FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron says the jury selection in the Boushie case was unfortunate.
“Totally unfair, didn’t do us any justice, (and) this gives us more incentive to change that with the Provincial government,” Cameron says. “20% of the province’s population is First Nations people.”
Chief Bobby Cameron says the FSIN would like to see mandatory jury allocation for First Nations people in future cases.
Cameron adds the jury doesn’t accurately represent the large population of First Nation people in the area.
