Boushie verdict fallout sparks allegations of threats, harassment

Ashley Burke, CBC News

An online fundraiser for Gerald Stanley, the Saskatchewan farmer found not guilty in the shooting death of Colten Boushie, has stirred up an online war of words as well as threats against an Ottawa woman.

The crowdfunding campaign, which has raised more than $200,000, began after the high-profile trial.

Earlier this month, a jury acquitted Stanley, 56, of second-degree murder. Boushie, 22, was shot and killed after he and four others from the Red Pheasant Cree Nation drove onto Stanley's rural property near Biggar, Sask., in August 2016.

Her 72-pound body was found near the Alexander Docks on Aug. 17, 2014, wrapped inside a duvet cover and weighted down with rocks.

Cormier, 56, was arrested at the end of 2015 and charged. He has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. His defence team in the Winnipeg trial, which began Jan. 29, rested its case on Thursday without presenting any evidence.
