Gerald Stanley was acquitted of second degree murder in the death of the 22-year-old Indigenous man, who was shot in the head almost two years ago near Biggar, Saskatchewan.

Francis Kavanaugh says Canadians can't ignore the systemic racism involved and he believes the jury composition supports the numerous documented reports of racism in the justice system.

Kavanaugh is also echoing calls for swift and immediate action to reform the Canadian criminal justice system.
