Can Canada be a real leader in the fight against climate change?

It is now officially fall, which means it is officially time to talk about carbon pricing, apparently.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said on Wednesday that all provinces could soon have either a cap-and-trade system or carbon tax as the Liberal government continues to prepare its national plan for carbon pricing.

McKenna also noted that in order for the system to be effective, price must increase with inflation instead of being fixed.

Hilariously, at the UN conference this week, Norwegian politician Erik Solheim joked that since everyone loves Canada, everyone would be happy to take leadership from Canada.
