Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured when the Broncos junior hockey team bus and a semi-truck owned by Singh collided at a rural intersection in Saskatchewan last spring.

Singh faces eight charges relating to non-compliance with federal and provincial safety regulations.

Jaskirat Singh Sidhu was driving the semi unit and was charged earlier this year with dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
