OTTAWA _ Justin Trudeau will meet with the family of Colten Boushie in the angry aftermath of a not-guilty verdict in the First Nation man’s shooting death.

A spokesman for the prime minister says Trudeau is looking forward to listening to the family and his heart goes out to Boushie’s community.

On Friday, a jury acquitted Saskatchewan farmer Gerald Stanley of second-degree murder after he shot and killed Boushie, a 22-year-old member of the Red Pheasant First Nation, in 2016.

Boushie’s relatives are also expected to meet Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale today.

His family sat down Monday with the ministers of Indigenous relations and Indigenous services, telling them they have little faith in the criminal justice system and they are focused on talking about long-term improvements.

Wilson-Raybould has said the government is considering changes to the way juries are selected after concerns were raised about the apparent all-white makeup of the jury in Stanley’s trial.
