The Canadian oil sands province of Alberta adopted a plan to reduce its GHG emissions. Rachel Notley, Premier of Alberta, announced a new climate strategy at a press conference in Edmonton on Sunday (Nov. 22). The main feature of Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan, based on the advice of the Climate Change Advisory Panel, is the introduction of an economy wide carbon tax. Starting in 2017, the new carbon tax will be applied across all economic sectors, covering around 90% of provincial emissions. The price will begin at 20 Canadian dollars (C$) per ton on January 1, 2017, jump to C$30 per ton on January 1, 2018, and increase in real terms thereafter.
