Episode 7: No justice for Colten Boushie — Canada’s white supremacy problem

This episode starts off featuring Jade Tootootsis, Colten Boushie’s cousin, at a press conference following the acquittal of Gerald Stanley in Colten’s death. Jade reminds people to get organized and be mobilized to fight for justice.

Sandy and Nora talk about colonialism, injustice and how nothing will change if people don’t heed Jade’s call: that nothing is possible unless we organize ourselves.

    I completely agree with your perspectives on colonialism and systemic racism as contributing factors to the death of Colten and to his murderer getting away with it. I do believe also, that you overlooked an aspect unique to the rural west, and that is the a) use of guns to b) solve issues of property. Property rights reign supreme. That is unique to the geography- the lawyer knew it, as did the jury.

    I do not like that the value of one-off, yet deliberate deaths like Colten and Tina are perceived as “less than” the accident that caused the death of so many Humboldt Broncos. That is why I feel guilt for grieving for the team, because these same people from these same areas hold our First Peoples in such contempt and disregard. I support your right to free speech, Nora, and believe these types of discussions are necessary to improve the Canadian fabric.
