I would hate being him.. reliving that over and over. I wonder what the sentence will be?

hate to be him, why what makes you people think he is even remorseful---because he said so--- he said so hoping this will get him less time that simple

What makes you think he isn't remorseful. For goodness sake, he was an inexperienced driver who made a horrible, deadly mistake that he will be re-living and paying for, for the rest of his life.
To suggest he is only faking remorse to get a lower jail sentence is one of the most ignorant comments I've heard in a long time.

Well, the maximum sentence for dangerous driving causing death is 14 years, and the maximum for dangerous driving causing bodily harm is 10 years. I personally think it is highly unlikely he will get anywhere near the maximum sentence though, and any sentence he does receive for each count will run concurrently I am sure. It is pretty clear this poor guys is as devastated as he claims, and it is not hard to imagine just how terrible he feels. Imagine yourself having to deal with knowing a moment’s carelessness on your part cost the lives of 16 young people and devastated the lives of so many others. He could have instructed his lawyer to plea bargain with Crown, or even to take it to trial, but for the sake of possibly providing some closure to the families he instructed his lawyer that he would take full responsibility for his mistake. As the one father said, no sentence will bring his son back, but because of the guilty plea there might one day be some discussion of forgiveness.

that is an assumption. *removed*

any normal human of any descent would be absolutely horrified. This would ruin the average person's life as it did for the families of those injured / killed.

As he said (truck driver) he didn't want to add to pain & suffering by having court case, so he pleaded guilty on all charges.
Because ultimately he knew what he had done was wrong. Now it's up to judge & crown to hand down the appropriate sentence.

A good lawyer would have advised plea- bargaining. Oh wait! He did, but his client insisted on taking full responsibilty for his carelessness. Maybe he's hoping for leniancy from the Judge, but his lawyer would have told him there's no guarantee of that. Without plea-bargaining he has thrown himself at the complete mercy of the Court, seemingly in the interest of not putting the families through any more grief. All people should be so accountable. What a sad story for all involved.
