"Too many people died, too many people were injured and something needs to be done about it".

"I respect the RCMP and I think they took the time they needed to do a thorough job", Haugan told Global News.

"He'll have his day in court and whatever is decided there will work for me".

The RCMP has announced that it has made an arrest and laid charges in its investigation into the deadly Humboldt Broncos Bus Crash.

Saskatchewan Commanding Officer and Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki will attend, as will Supt. He's set to appear in court next week, but no date has been set.

A collision reenactment took place in April, and RCMP conducted more than 60 interviews, took more than 6,000 photographs and analyzed all available documentation, including the driver log book, Wiliams said. He had been waiting for police to lay charges.

The RCMP did not provide information about a toxicology report. "This is a tragic event, first and foremost".

The Saskatchewan government in a statement thanked RCMP "for their diligence" over the course of the investigation.

He was arrested Friday - news that swept through Humboldt in Facebook messages and phone calls to friends. She said the 29 charges - one for each victim injured or killed - was the right approach. "Our investigators were thorough in their systematic analysis of this evidence", Williams said.

"There [are] a number of elements that make up the offence of unsafe driving, including the marked departure from the standard of care expected from a driver, in this case a commercial truck driver", he said.

"In order to lay these charges, we required evidence a motor vehicle was being operated in a manner that was risky to the public".

"The circumstances of just driving through [a stop sign] are different", Williams said.
