Former Ottawa police chief Vern White is leaving the Senate, his office said Thursday.
“We can confirm Senator White has resigned from the Senate, effective October 2,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “There is no statement that will be released.”
White, 63, was eligible to serve in the Senate until 2034, when he turns 75.
Then-Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed White to the Red Chamber in 2012. Before then, White was the Ottawa police chief for five years.
