Boushie was fatally shot in August 2016 by a Saskatchewan farmer who was later found not guilty of second-degree murder.

"Every day Saskatchewan RCMP officers and employees work collaboratively with our communities both Indigenous and non-Indigenous," Zablocki said in a release Friday.

"The Saskatchewan RCMP is committed to continue supporting and further developing these positive relationships."

None of the allegations in the Boushie family lawsuit have been proven in court.
