Jim Flaherty talks to Sun News about the bank governor.
Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is satisfied that Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney was not dabbling in partisan politics when Carney spent a week last summer vacationing at the Nova Scotia home of a Liberal MP.
“Mark says there is no partisan political activity,” Flaherty said in a year-end interview broadcast on Sun News Network Thursday. “That’s very important. It’s fundamental, I think, for confidence in our institutions. So I haven’t commented on it other than that because it’s up to the governor, I think, if he chooses to comment on it to go ahead and comment.”
