The man who was responsible for the fatal Humboldt Broncos bus crash told the families of those killed Thursday that he takes full responsibility and he's "so, so, so, so sorry."

A sentencing hearing in Melfort, Saskatchewan has adjourned for two months to allow the Judge to decide what sentence will be given to an Alberta truck driver who caused the deadly Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

Jaskirat Singh Sidhu of Calgary has pleaded guilty to 29 counts of dangerous driving in last April's collision.

Sixteen people died, including Lethbridge's Logan Boulet. A total of 13 others were injured.

An emotional Sidhu addressed the families at the end of the hearing Thursday (Jan. 31) saying he takes full responsibility for what happened. "It happened because of my lack of experience. I have taken the most valuable things in your life. And I'm so, so, so, sorry."

The Crown is asking for 10 years in prison. The defence did not give an sentence recommendation.

The sentence will be handed down March 22nd.
