    Truck driver in deadly Humboldt Broncos bus crash granted day parole

    The driver who plead guilty and accepted responsibility was sentenced to eight years. He served nearly four years. Now he is on day parole for the next six months and will be granted full parole as long as everything goes well. However he is still facing deportation to India.

    Now everyone agrees this was a tragedy however in the four years since the crash we are still seeing fatal crashes by new and poorly trained drivers. What happened to all of the promises to make our industry safer and new drivers better trained before hitting the road?

    The whole melt program was developed under the idea that classroom training somehow translates to driving experience, and that being able to pull off a 90 degree back somehow compensates for the total lack of highway training. Can't forget to mention the elephant in the room, let's call it the "me first, #### you" mentality that seems to be growing in this country for whatever reason.

    ELDT prior to driving don't you know. Muhaha...

    Funny thing is all ELDT did is forced people to know the stuff from the written test better, and gave training schools another revenue source is all. They just repackaged the written test information and make you go through all the information all over again once more. Anyone wanting to take their written test and pass it fine the first time should just do the EDLT first. If you passed your written test with flying colors, then the ELDT will be a piece of cake.

    Has he even really served that time? His sentencing wasn't until Jan 29/2019 and not sure if he went to jail that day. This is pretty sad but on par with Canadian law and the justice system or lack of one. It's pretty much a gaurntee he WON'T be deported now. Who would grant some one day parole only to deport some one 6 months later. Pure stupidy

    Either you have it or you don't. No amount of training, classroom or behind the wheel, will make someone who doesn't get it become a safe driver.

    what a country.

    how he's going to fight his deportation, and win.

    then probably fight the ministry of transportation to get his license back, and win.

    what a joke

    In this ####hole you only have to serve 1/3 of your sentenced time before you are eligible for parole. I don't know what's worse; the people on the parole board or the fact this guy won't be deported in the end.

    I’d say parole board you can’t eat parts of fellow passengers on a greyhound then get day parole early because you promise to stay on your medication.
