Softchoice boss on Mark Carney’s departure as Bank of Canada head

The announcement Monday morning by finance minister Jim Flaherty that popular Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney would be leaving his post in six months to become head of the Bank of England caught many by surprise, and wondering about the potential impact on the Canadian economy.

In an interview with the Globe and Mail, channel veteran and SoftChoice CEO Dave MacDonald reacted to the news:

“He has been an outstanding bank governor, and certainly [is a leader] from a communications perspective with the business community. But I think we have had a very consistent strategy to manage our deficits in Canada, and to manage our interest rates in a very responsible way, that I don’t think will be affected by his departure.”
