I saw Mr. Howard in the morning when i dropped my kids off at school. He became one of my customers and a good referral. I was shocked when I heard of this terrible accident. I'm glad to see some justice in the works.

Is the truck driver -- Jaswinder Singh Bagri -- related to Ajaib Singh Bagri?
Ajaib Singh Bagri is well-known in Canada. He was once accused -- later acquitted -- of playing a lead role in the 23 June 1985 bombing of Air India Flight 182 over the Atlantic Ocean. In 1984, Ajaib Singh Bagri 'worked as a forklift driver at a sawmill near the town of Kamloops' [ Web Link ].

I think that it is absolutely disgusting that the RCMP has kept everyone in the dark on this story until now and that the accused is still free. Now I hear that they are going to delay the trial for a year because the accused claims he has no understanding of English (and he drives a double trailer semi?)!!
