A federal cabinet minister who suggested his opponents were allies of child pornographers and saw details of his sordid divorce on social media while he argued for increased Internet surveillance is leaving public life.

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews announced Monday, in the leadup to an anticipated cabinet shuffle, that he was resigning as MP for the Manitoba riding of Provencher effective Tuesday.

"I am leaving public life in order to focus on my family and to pursue opportunities in the private sector," Toews said in a news release.
