"Canada's outgoing ambassador to the United States Frank McKenna announced on Monday that he will not be running for the leadership of the Liberal Party.
'Contrary to the belief of some, being prime minister of Canada has not been a burning ambition for me,' McKenna told reporters at a news conference in Washington.
'I didn't accept the position as ambassador to Washington to create a platform with such a motive, it was simply an opportunity to provide four more years of service in the interest of my country.'"
