On Tuesday, February 5, 2019, University of Toronto Faculty of Law Professor Kent Roach presented an Asper Centre Constitutional Roundtable titled “Canadian Justice, Indigenous Injustice: The Gerald Stanley/Colten Boushie Case.”
In this Constitutional Roundtable, Gerald Stanley’s trial for the killing of Colten Boushie, a 22 year old Cree man, will be examined in its broader historical, political and legal context with attention to the role of equality rights in jury selection and trial procedures. The jury selection reforms proposed in Bill C-75 will also be examined as will the role of the RCMP and other policing services.
