CANNES, France -- Mark Carney, Canada's AC/DC-loving central bank governor, is to become the world's top banking cop, G20 leaders confirmed here Friday.
"It is the first time a Canadian has headed an international financial institution of such wide scope," Prime Minister Stephen Harper told reporters here. "His appointment is both a tribute to his personal qualities and a reflection on Canada's superior performance in monetary, fiscal and financial sector policy areas."
