OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said on Thursday the new Bank of Canada governor would be named "soon", a spokesman for the minister said.

The replacement for Governor Mark Carney, who is stepping down on June 1 to head to the Bank of England, is widely expected to be named later on Thursday, possibly at 4 p.m. EDT.
