With Prime Minister Justin Trudeau widely expected to call an election for this fall, Mark Carney says he wants to put an end to speculation he would run in an Ottawa riding.
The former governor of the Bank of Canada and Bank of England says he’s committed to help organize the private financial sector in the run-up to the U.N. climate conference scheduled between October 31 and November 12.
Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna recently announced she would not seek re-election in Ottawa Centre.
Saying he fully supports the Trudeau government Carney adds he is not ruling out running as a Liberal candidate at another time.
Carney is the U.N. special envoy on climate action and finance and also chairs the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, which aims to brings banks and asset management companies together to speed up the transition to net zero carbon emissions.
