Embattled Toronto Senator says he regrets his moral failing but plans to keep seat


A Toronto senator says he won't be rushed into a hasty decision amid calls for his resignation over his relationship with a teenage girl.
    
Don Meredith told The Canadian Press he deeply regrets his moral failing but is not ready to resign his Senate seat.

A number of senators have called for Meredith to quit after a report by the Senate ethics commissioner blasted his conduct, saying it could damage the upper chamber's credibility.

Meredith has acknowledged the relationship, but said he did not have sex with the woman until after she turned 18.
