Toronto Independent Senator Don Meredith has announced that he is resigning his seat in the Senate.
“I am acutely aware that the upper chamber is more important than my moral failings,” the statement reads.
“After consulting with my family, community leaders and my counsel over the past several weeks, I have decided to move forward with my life with the full support of my wife and my children. I am blessed to have had their unconditional love and support throughout this ordeal.
“It is my hope that my absence from the Senate will allow the senators to focus their good work on behalf of all Canadians.”
Officials of the Senate were to vote this week to decide if Meredith should be expelled from the Red Chamber for violating the Senate ethics code.
