GUNTER: Boushie didn’t deserve to die, but activist responses aren’t the answer

It’s a shame Colten Boushie is dead. He seemed like a decent kid. He’d trained as a wilderness firefighter and as a short-order cook. He was trying to better himself.

He didn’t deserve to die that day in August 2016 when he and a group of friends drove onto Gerald Stanley’s farm near Biggar, Sask.

But Stanley’s acquittal on second-degree murder charges in a Sask. courtroom on Friday is not a travesty of justice.
