OTTAWA Aug 25 (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Tuesday said he and Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz had agreed that elevated market volatility "in and of itself is never good".

Harper, pressed by reporters about a conversation he and Poloz had about the economy on Monday, also noted there had been no signs of instability in the global banking system.
