Canadian Press NewsAlert: Former MP Chuck Strahl quits intelligence watchdog

Chuck Strahl is pictured in Ottawa on February 3, 2011. Strahl says he is stepping down as chairman of the Security Intelligence Review Committee, Canada's spy watchdog. Strahl, who came under fire earlier this month for registering to lobby on behalf of Northern Gateway Pipelines, insists that he's done nothing wrong, and is quitting to avoid becoming a distraction for the committee, which helps to keep an eye on the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
