Mark Carney comes out as Liberal, pledges support

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 09 Apr, 2021 11:42 PM
  • Mark Carney comes out as Liberal, pledges support

Former central banker Mark Carney says he'll do whatever he can to support the federal Liberal party.

Until now, Carney has avoided any overt show of partisanship, as required in his former roles as governor of the Bank of Canada and the Bank of England.

But he's telling Liberals at their convention that he's committed to public service and helping the governing party.

It's not clear whether that means Carney intends to run for the party in the next election.

Liberals have long touted Carney as a possible leader one day.

He flirted quietly with the idea of a leadership run back in 2012 but eventually squelched the idea by suggesting he would just as soon become a "circus clown."
