U of M to honour Carney

  • Print

The University of Manitoba will honour outgoing Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney with an honorary degree in a private ceremony in Ottawa next week.

U of M has confirmed the ceremony will take place April 5 in Ottawa and will be a private reception, but has declined to release other details until the ceremony takes place.

A prominent Winnipegger who received a written invitation to the ceremony says it will be held at the prestigious Rideau Club in Ottawa.

The 147-year-old club in the heart of downtown Ottawa says on its website it is "home to Ottawa's business, civic and political leaders."

It took three days for staff at the U of M to confirm the university is honouring Carney after the Free Press first made inquiries.

The university has not yet issued a news release and some communications staff were initially unaware of the upcoming event.

Online biographies of Carney do not show any apparent connection between Carney and the U of M.

Carney will become governor of the Bank of England July 1.
