Canadian Minister of the Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna pledged Sunday to enact a nationwide carbon price on provinces that don’t do enough to curb greenhouse gas emissions on their own.

McKenna did not give specific details on how the plan would be devised, or how the price would be imposed, though she said it would be in place sometime before October.
