REGINA – An organization that represents 74 First Nations in Saskatchewan says it’s angry the Crown will not appeal the acquittal of the man who fatally shot Colten Boushie.

The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations says it wants a “forensic accounting” of the jury verdict that found Gerald Stanley not guilty of second-degree murder.

Federation Chief Bobby Cameron says there should be a Royal Commission looking into systemic racism in Saskatchewan’s justice system.

The Saskatchewan Crown says a verdict can’t be appealed just because people don’t agree with it.

The trial heard that Boushie was one of five young people who drove onto Stanley’s farm near Biggar in 2016.

Stanley told the trial he fired warning shots to scare them away, but the gun accidentally went off again.
