OVERHAULING ALBERTA'S TRUCKING LICENCING

   Calgary Herald:  Alberta’s transportation minister says the province is still working on an overhaul of Alberta’s trucking licensing regulations in the wake of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
    At a press conference on Friday, Transportation Minister Brian Mason said the province had been looking at mandatory driver training requirements long before the April 6 collision which killed 16 people and left another 13 injured.
   The statement came just hours after RCMP in Saskatchewan announced charges have been laid against Jaskirat Sidhu, a 29-year-old man from Calgary, who police say was behind the wheel of a tandem big rig when it collided with the Humboldt Broncos’ team bus at the intersection of Highway 335 and Highway 35 near Nipawin, Sask.
