The lawyer for the former truck driver who caused the deadly Humboldt Broncos bus crash hopes he will get a chance to argue against his client’s possible deportation before the Federal Court of Canada.
The Canada Border Services Agency recommended in March that Jaskirat Singh Sidhu be handed over to the Immigration and Refugee Board to decide if he should be deported back to India.
Sidhu’s lawyer, Michael Greene, has already filed an argument with the Federal Court and expects a response from the Department of Justice by the end of the month.
In March, 2019, Sidhu was sentenced to eight years after pleading guilty to dangerous driving causing death and bodily harm in the April 6th, 2018, collision that killed 16 people and injured 13.
