Gerald Stanley's lawyer has responded to the Crown's decision not to appeal his client's acquittal by saying the Stanley family is relieved the criminal process is over but "this is not a happy day."

"On behalf of the Stanley family, and my team, I offer our unreserved condolences to the Boushie/Baptiste family," wrote Scott Spencer in an emailed statement to CBC.

On Wednesday, Crown prosecutors announced they would not appeal the acquittal of Stanley, a Sask. farmer who was accused of second-degree murder in the shooting of 22-year-old Colten Boushie.

"The Stanley family is relieved that the criminal process is now complete, but this is not a happy day. A young man died, that is a terrible tragedy," said Spencer in the statement.

"There is no going back; there is no making it right."

Spencer noted that the Stanley family hopes "that with time the Boushie/Baptiste family can begin to heal."

The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations is expected to offer its reaction to the Crown's decision shortly.
