Tensions have long been running high between Canada's PM and the outgoing central bank governor
Tensions between Mark Carney, Jim Flaherty and Stephen Harper have been evident ever since Mr. Carney let it be known in private circles that the Harper government initially failed to respond to the 2008 financial crisis. There were added concerns about the manner in which Mr. Harper used to summon Mr. Carney to his office, at times speaking to him in a lecturing manner about the economy. The relationship reached a low the day Mr. Harper summoned both the Finance Minister and Mr. Carney to his office and released this photo, which made the governor look uncomfortably like a political aide.
