It's something families of the victims are split on. Some say Jaskirat Singh Sidhu should be sent back to his home country of India but at least one father says he is willing to help him in his fight against deportation.

Sidhu was sentenced to eight years after pleading guilty to multiple counts of dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm in the crash that killed 16 and injured 13 others.

A truck driver who caused the deadly Humboldt Broncos bus crash was sentenced Friday to eight years in prison by a judge who said she believed his remorse was sincere, but she had to consider the serious consequences for so many people.

Court heard Sidhu blew through a stop sign at a rural intersection in Saskatchewan on April 6, 2018, and into the path of the junior hockey team's bus, which was taking players and staff to a playoff game.

During sentencing arguments, defence counsel said Sidhu had immigrated to Canada from India with his now wife, and would likely face deportation because he's a permanent resident convicted of a serious offence.

Calgary-based immigration lawyer Michael Greene says Canada Border Services Agency officers need to look at all the circumstances of Sidhu's case in deciding whether to issue a deportation order.

He says Sidhu, who has no prior criminal history, is someone who is well-educated, fluent in English and extremely remorseful for the collision.

The truck driver who pleaded guilty in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash told families and friends of the victims that he was sorry during the final day of a Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, the driver of the truck that the Humboldt Broncos team bus crashed into, leaves with his lawyers Mark Brayford, right, and

“He considers Canada his home," Greene said Thursday.

“I’m hoping that people in the public, just like the (border agency) officers, will be open to seeing the good in him," he said.

"(Sidhu and his wife) would like to be able to continue on the path they were on before this terrible tragedy — and that path includes being able to raise a family in Canada.”

He said while Sidhu's crime had catastrophic consequences, his actions were not malicious. Greene also said Sidhu has faced one of the toughest penalties available.

Michelle Straschnitzki, whose son Ryan was paralyzed from the chest down in the crash, said she has sympathy for Sidhu's family living in Canada.

But she doesn't think he deserves to be able to stay and carry on with a normal life after his sentence ends.

"I would argue that there's 29 people who don't get to have a fresh, new life and because of his negligence — which is putting it lightly — it doesn't really lend itself to that," Straschnitzki told The Canadian Press.

"I'm sorry. I feel terrible for his family and I don't think he should be punished for the rest of his life, but I also don't think he should be rewarded for his deeds."

Former NHL player Chris Joseph, whose son Jaxon died, had just finished what he called a “particularly difficult” session of counselling when he heard the news.

"Obviously a life in Canada is much better for him than going back to India, but our hope is the legal system has a backbone and sticks to it," he said.

Scott Thomas's son, Evan, was another Broncos player who was killed. Thomas forgave Sidhu in court and said he's kept in touch with him through his wife.

He acknowledges every Broncos family will think differently about Sidhu's future, but Thomas doesn't believe anything more will be gained by deporting him when he wants to be in Canada with his wife.

"He's a broken man," Thomas said.

"I don't know specifically what he's been through in prison, but I know he's in a prison in his mind for sure. I know he struggles with this every day and he'll continue to no matter where he is, whether he's in Canada or back home in India."

Thomas believes his family would be willing to write a letter in support of Sidhu's bid to stay.

“(Deportation would) ruin his life even more than it already has. There’s enough tragedy that’s come out of this.”
