Mr. Garno put an end to the rumors circulating about him for almost six weeks that Canada would be the next ambassador to France.

The post of ambassador to Paris has been vacant since June, following the appointment of Isabelle Hudan as President and CEO of the Canadian Business Development Bank.

In a message on his Twitter account on Sunday evening, Mr. Garno indicated he would attend the House of Commons on Monday, resuming his work for the first time since the September 20 federal election.

“The 44E The Canadian Parliament begins tomorrow. Many asked me if I was retiring from politics. No, I represent the NDG-Westmount residents, ”he wrote in his message.

According to information received by Press, Mr. Gorney was keen to create a straightforward record about his political future, but liberal strategists began speculating on the liberal candidates who could run for office in Mr Garno Riding, which, if he received a diplomatic appointment, would be considered a liberal stronghold. .

The name of Anna Gaini, former president of the Liberal Party of Canada, was specifically mentioned.

To everyone’s surprise, Justin Trudeau decided to remove Mark Garno from the Cabinet on October 26 when he announced the cabinet that would support him in the management of state affairs. The Prime Minister focused on Melanie Jolie as Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
