Canada's top spy, Jim Judd, has tendered his resignation, effective as of June, the Globe and Mail reported. Mr. Judd took over as head of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) in 2004. Since then, the agency has seen its mandate, and budget, expanded significantly, even as it weathered controversies over the torture of Canadians abroad and fallout from the Air India Inquiry. Mr. Judd formerly served as secretary of the Treasury Board and featured regularly on Embassy's list of those influencing Canadian foreign policy.
