TORONTO Oct 3 Canada will have a minimum price
on carbon emissions by 2018, the country's prime minister said
on Monday, with provinces given the option between implementing
a carbon tax or a cap-and-trade market by then.
Under the national plan, which was quickly rejected by the
oil-rich province of Alberta unless it comes with approval for
pipelines, carbon pollution will cost C$10 a tonne in 2018,
rising incrementally to C$50 a tonne by 2022.
