An Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan board member has resigned, citing a position of conflict given that he also sits on the board of BCE.

Thomas C. O’Neill tendered his resignation effective immediately.

Earlier this week, Teachers’ said it was “closely monitoring developments and is exploring its options” as BCE’s largest shareholder in a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

O’Neill joined the plan’s board in 2003.
