(Ottawa) Mark Carney, who has long been a potential candidate for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada, will be one of the guest speakers at next week’s training conference.
The former governor of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England is a kind of entry into the political arena. Until recently, his leadership positions needed to avoid the slightest hint of partisan loyalty.

In 2012, after the worst election in party history, Carney was not interested in leading it. “Why would I be a circus clown?” Said seriously.
He left the country as soon as he came to power in the Bank of England, but after his return to Canada and the recent publication of his memoirs, his interest in federal politics once again grew: “Value (s): Building a Better World for All” or “Value (s) : Building a better world for all “, in free translation.
In this book, Mark Carney explains how he sees a sustainable and more comprehensive economic recovery based on the lessons he has learned from monetary policy management in Canada and Britain during the 2008 financial crisis, and Europe during the turbulent consequences of leaving the country.
When Bill Morney abruptly resigned as finance minister in August, his name was mentioned as an alternative. The Prime Minister preferred to appoint Christiana Freeland, considered a candidate for his legacy.
Mark Carney’s name returned to replace Mr. Mornie at Toronto Center Riding before the by – election. In the end, he didn’t show up. Marcy Ian has been elected co-chair of the Virtual Congress from April 8 to 10.
Since the release of his book last month, Mr Carney has been quiet about his political ambitions. He said he would focus on his work as an outstanding UN Ambassador for Climate Action and Finance and Vice President of Brookfield Asset Management, where he would oversee the company’s expansion. Global focus on environmental and social investment.
He did not deny the future in politics.
