The head of the civilian board that oversees Canada's intelligence service has resigned his position following media reports on his past business dealings.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper accepted the resignation of Dr. Arthur T. Porter as chair of the Security Intelligence Review Committee, according to a brief statement issued Thursday by the Prime Minister's Office.

In the statement, Harper thanked Porter "for his service on the Security Intelligence Review Committee and to his country" and said a process to replace him would begin soon. Former Conservative MP and cabinet minister Carol Skelton, who was appointed to SIRC in July 2010, was named acting chair.
