10/3 podcast: Guilty plea brings relief in Humboldt Broncos tragedy

It has been nine months since the horrific crash between a semi-trailer and a bus carrying players and personnel from the Humboldt Broncos hockey team.

On April 6 2018, the driver of the semi failed to yield at a stop sign along a Saskatchewan Highway and hit the team’s bus, killing 16 and injuring 13.

Now, nine months later, the driver of the truck has owned up for his actions, pleading guilty to all charges.

We look at why he pleaded guilty, what the reaction has been, and what penalty he could be facing.

Host Dave Breakenridge is joined by Saskatoon Star Phoenix justice reporter Bre McAdam.
