The RCMP’s investigation into the 2016 shooting death of 22-year-old Colten Boushie will be examined by a police watchdog.

The Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP says it’s looking into how the Mounties handled the case of the young Indigenous man shot on a Saskatchewan farm.
56-year-old Gerald Stanley was acquitted by a jury last month, prompting controversial social media remarks from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould and led to marches in cities across the country.
Boushie’s family had been calling for a review of the RCMP investigation.
An internal Mountie investigation, done by a senior Indigenous officer, vindicated the police service.
The commission will also review and investigate the RCMP’s dismissal of the Boushie family’s initial public complaint.
