NFU expresses condolences to family of Colten Boushie

(August 17, 2016) On behalf of our members, the National Farmers Union wishes to express our profound sadness over the tragic shooting of Colten Boushie and extend our deepest condolences to his family and community. We join them in mourning the loss of their loved one.

As farmers, we condemn the rampant racist remarks that have circulated since the death of Colten Boushie, including  comments made on the "Saskatchewan Farmers" Facebook group.

We also commit ourselves to building relationships of solidarity, mutual respect, and friendship with our Indigenous neighbours, and to honouring our obligations as Treaty people.
