Truck Driver to be Deported, After Serving Sentence

Jaskirit Singh Sidhu will be deported from Canada, once he has finished serving his sentence for his role in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

In April of 2018 Sidhu was driving a semi that ran through a stop sign, and collided with the bus carrying the SJHL hockey club’s players and support staff.

16 people were killed, 13 injured.

Sidhu plead guilty to dangerous driving causing death, and dangerous driving causing injury.  He was sentenced to eight years in jail.

Sidhu had made an application to stay in Canada after his jail sentence was complete, but that request was turned down by the Canada Border Services Agency.
