And Ms. Freelandโ€™s views on Ukraine may also be too strong for some. She went to Kyiv in 2014 to celebrate the overthrow of the Kremlin-supported Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych, and meet officials there. To her regret, Russia then put her on what is now a lengthy list of banned individuals.

There is also an older concern, dismissed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, that her Ukrainian grandfather, a grateful immigrant to Canada, was as a younger man involved with a Ukrainian nationalist movement that saw the Nazis as useful foils to counter the Soviets.

To the end of their lives, Ms. Freeland wrote in 2015 in an essay called โ€œMy Ukraine,โ€ her maternal grandparents โ€œsaw themselves as political exiles with a responsibility to keep alive the idea of an independent Ukraine, which had last existed, briefly, during and after the chaos of the 1917 Russian Revolution.โ€ She continued: โ€œThat dream persisted into the next generation, and in some cases the generation after that.โ€

Ms. Freeland, through a spokesman, made clear that she is actively engaged in her current job and has not herself put her name forward. โ€œMs. Freeland already has an important job and is focused on serving Canada and Canadians,โ€ said her spokesman, Alex Lawrence.
