Former Ontario premier Bob Rae has been named as Canada’s new ambassador to the United Nations.

The 71-year-old Rae served as Ontario’s N-D-P premier from 1990 to 1995 before later joining the federal Liberals and serving as interim leader in 2010.

He succeeds Marc-Andre Blanchard as ambassador following the Trudeau government’s unsuccessful campaign to win a two-year seat on the U-N Security Council.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Rae will follow Blanchard in pushing for more sustainable development and action on climate change while at the U-N.
