Rimbey library to show screening of Colton Boushie story and Reflections from the ’60s scoop

January busy for Rimbey library

The Rimbey Library will feature a screening of The Colten Boushie story on Jan. 13 at 7 p.m.

The library is working in partnership with Amnesty International to feature this story.

Colten Boushie was a 22-year old indigenous man of the Cree Red Pheasant First Nation who was fatally shot in 2016 on a rural Saskatchewan farm. The farmer, Gerald Stanley, stood trial for second-degree murder and for a lesser charge of manslaughter.

Stanley was acquitted.

On Jan. 27 the Rimbey Library will feature Reflections from the ’60s scoop.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Rimbey United Church and lunch will be provided.

The Sixties Scoop refers to a period of time in Canada when an unknown number of Indigenous children were taken from their parents and communities by child intervention services and placed with mostly non-Indigenous families.

The event is free of charge, but the public is asked to pre-register at the Rimbey Library.
