According to a CBC News report, Sidhu's lawyer Michael Green has said that this decision was predetermined, because to deport Sidhu, only proof is required that he is not a Canadian citizen and that he has committed a serious crime. Sidhu is a resident of India and has got PR in Canada.


The Government of Canada has issued orders to deport a truck driver of Indian origin to India on Friday. The convicted truck driver caused a horrific bus accident in Canada in 2018 that killed 16 members of a junior hockey team and injured 13 others. According to reports, truck driver Jaskirat Singh Sidhu of Calgary ran through a stop sign at a rural intersection near Tisdale in Saskatchewan province and came into the path of the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team bus. The decision came against Sidhu at an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing in Calgary on Friday.
