      On today's National Day of Action for Colten Boushie, a rally was held on the CBC plaza in downtown Vancouver.

      It's one of many initiatives taking place to honour the 22-year-old Indigenous man from Saskatchewan who was shot and killed on the farm property owned by Gerald Stanley.

      Yesterday, Stanley was acquitted by a jury in the August 2016 shooting, causing grief and outrage across Canada.

      A gofundmepage has been created to help the Boushie/Baptiste family and offer care to Colten's mother.

      It's already raised $47,523 as of this writing, vastly surpassing its initial goal of $15,000.

      Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has also tweeted messages of condolences to the Boushie family in the wake of the verdict.

      That elicited the following response from Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, who represents the federal riding of Vancouver Granville.
