The father of one of Humboldt Broncos who died in a car accident last spring met with a truck driver who had caused a crash.
Scott Thomas told CTV News that he had a "strong" and "cathartic" meeting with Jaskirat Singh Sidhu on Wednesday for 15 minutes. He said he would rather keep the details of what was said between Sidhua and himself.
Thomas is the father of Evangel Thomas, who at the time of his fall was 18 years old. Sixteen people were killed and 13 were injured when the Sidhu truck drove into their bus.
Some of Sidhu's relatives were present during the meeting, Thomas said.
Sidhu pleaded guilty to 29 points of dangerous accident-related driving. His hearing on punishment is taking place this week in Melfort, Sask.
