Another major development in Canada's Norbourg Asset Management probe took place late last week when the Autorite des marches financiers (AMF) revealed that its enforcement chief had recently resigned amid political infighting, according to a Globe and Mail article.

Claire Lewis, who took over last year as enforcement officer of the agency, quit in mid-July according to AMF spokesman Philippe Roy. He said her departure was not related to AMF's probe of Montreal-based Norbourg. He also said that Nathalie Droulin, head of AMF's legal affairs branch, has taken over Lewis's duties until a replacement is found.
