What's changed in the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people since the Gerald Stanley verdict?

Saskatoon Morning

It was one year ago that Gerald Stanley was acquitted in the shooting-death of Colten Boushie. Stanley was accused of killing the 22-year-old Cree man on Stanley's Biggar-area farm. Boushie was shot at close range by Stanley who claimed his gun went off accidentally. The "not guilty" verdict ignited debate that included racist comments. Rallies formed across Canada calling for justice reform. So, what has changed in the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in our city?
