Pamela Wallin resigns as Guelph university chancellor

Citing increased responsibilities in the Senate, Pamela Wallin has stepped down as chancellor of the University of Guelph, the school announced Thursday. "Senator Wallin feels that she can no longer devote the time necessary to properly serve as chancellor," the university's president Alastair Summerlee said in a release. The former CBC host and journalist became chancellor of the Ontario school in March 2007. She was elected to a second three-year term in March 2010. She became a senator in 2008 and now chairs the national security and defence committee and also serves as a member of the Senate's foreign affairs and international trade committee, the veterans affairs subcommittee and the special senate committee on anti-terrorism.
