"The Canadian government has implemented a carbon tax to help combat climate change. The country's provinces and territories will have to implement the new plan by 2018.
On Oct. 3, Canada’s Liberal government announced that there would be a national tax on carbon, starting with $7.60 per metric ton in 2016 and gradually increasing to $50-per-ton by 2022, according to The Los Angeles Times.
'There is no hiding from climate change,' Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated in the House of Commons. 'It is real and it is everywhere. We cannot undo the last 10 years of inaction. What we can do is make a real and honest effort… to protect the health of our environment, and with it, the health of all Canadians.'"
