Former Bank of Canada and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney will not run for the Liberal Party if elections are held this fall.
Ahead of the world-renowned former banker candidacy at the Ottawa Center, Minister Catherine McKenna has announced that she will not be asking for another term there.
But, Mr Carney eventually downplayed the rumors from Twitter by saying:
“If there is an election this year, I will not be a candidate. I fully support Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party and will do what I can if I can help. But now global action against the climate crisis is crucial. I have a commitment and I will keep it. “
Carney Glasgow will chair the Financial Alliance for Net Zero at the United Nations Climate Conference between October 31 and November 12.
“The goaltender will not go out of the snow during the third period of the crucial game,” he tweeted.
Last week, Mr Carney pointed out that the intense heat and forest fires that hit North America, and these days are affecting air quality in Montreal and Ottawa, are “just a recent example of a climate crisis.” “To stop this, we need to make our entire economy carbon neutral,” he said.
This is Raison d’Trey of Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero, which brings together more than 160 companies responsible for more than $ 70 billion in assets. Their goal is to accelerate the transition of the global economy to net zero emissions by 2050.
Mark Carney, a personal friend of Deputy Prime Minister Christiaan Freeland, grew up like her in Edmonton, in the heart of oil Canada.
However, he remained a “green banker” on the international stage.
According to him, companies and industries that do not plan to become carbon neutral are doomed to go bankrupt, and the pandemic offers a unique opportunity to keep the green bar.
