Jaskirat Singh Sidhu plead guilty to 29 counts of dangerous driving.
Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, the man who plead guilty for causing the Humboldt Broncos crash that took the lives of 16 people and injured 13, has been sentenced to eight years in prison.
The judge at the Melfort court said she balanced his remorse and guilty plea against the missed stop signs and severe toll of the crash.
The sentence comes close to what the Crown had been asking for, seeking 10 years.
Since Sidhu is a permanent resident, it is likely that he will face deportation after serving his sentence.
