Calgary camp in support of Colten Boushie is growing

 

The Teepee Village outside the courthouse in Calgary is growing.

The village was set up after Saskatchewan farmer Gerald Stanley was acquitted in the death of Red Pheasant Cree man Colten Boushie.

It joins other camps across the country that are holding vigil for issues like child welfare in Regina, justice in Toronto, and the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project in British Columbia.

The camp in Calgary has become so big, keeping it all together is now a full-time job for the organizer.
