I listened to a report on last night, were a parent said all he wanted to hear is the driver plead guilty to the charges.
This parent got that, as for sentence that's up to the courts.... he just wanted the driver to admit he was in the wrong.

Several family members of those killed and injured in the Humboldt Broncos crash say they still have one big question: Why?

It's possible the driver may not even begin to articulate the why.

I have not read all of this thread so I might easily be repeating others. I feel the owner of the company should be as responsible if not more responsible than the driver. The information coming out now points to terrible business practices including incomplete and even missing drivers records. I'll bet he was requiring drivers to drive too many KM's and for too long of periods. Any fool could figure out the routes, distances and times. I'm not saying the driver is not responsible, just that the owner should be in prison right beside him for at least as long a time for allowing this to go on.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

The owner of the trucking company has been charged.

The province said the training, which will include a standardized curriculum, will be mandatory as of March 1.

“New requirements for trucking companies based in Alberta will enhance safety on the roads right across the continent,” Mason said.

Like Smurfs comment above, this may have already been posted but there are too many to go through; I wonder, now that the police have laid out how it all happened, how it is that the driver of the bus didn't see the truck? There seemed to have been sufficient open space that the bus driver, at some point, would have seen the truck and realized that it wasn't going to stop?

I am not in any way criticizing the bus driver nor trying to suggest that he did anything wrong. It just seems to me that the only way to explain it would be that the driver was momentarily distracted at the exact wrong moment.

This whole thing is so sad. The pain the families are feeling. The pain the truck driver must be feeling. Nothing that comes out of this trial will be adequate for anyone.

And yes, the owner of the trucking company is as guilty as the driver.

Says a lot about the owner recruiting more drivers after his company was suspended.

It gets worse:

The semi driver who caused the Humboldt Broncos crash committed 70 violations of federal and provincial trucking regulations in the 11 days leading to the April 6, 2018 tragedy, according to a court document.

Jaskirat Singh Sidhu should not have been on the road when he caused the death of 16 people and injuries to 13 others, stated a Saskatchewan government report filed during Singh's sentencing hearing Monday in Melfort, Sask.

This Singh dood, the manager, certainly is morally bankrupt and
devoid of any ethics.

Total and blatant thumbing of the nose to Canadian/North American laws.

Certainly not what Canadians expect, or should tolerate from our citizens.

Any company name he ends up associated with should be black-listed.
As sure fire way to put him in his place.
Do not do business with people that possess zero integrity !

At least the driver shows remorse and is presenting himself to
take the full hit on the chin for his part in it all.

After the Alberta government shut him down during inquiry of crash in Saskatchewan. Didn't he try to start up a new trucking company out of his home, or I'm I wrong.

I posted a link above.

The owner of a suspended trucking company involved in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash began recruiting drivers on Kijiji as early as one month after the tragedy, for another trucking company based out of his Calgary home, CBC News has learned.
