WINNIPEG—Supporters of Tina Fontaine plan to hold a walk in Winnipeg today to honour the girl a day after the man accused of killing her was found not guilty.
A jury acquitted Raymond Cormier, 56, of second-degree murder after 11 hours of deliberation.
The verdict was met with anger and sadness by Indigenous leaders who say the 15-year-old girl was completely let down by the social safety net that was supposed to protect her.
