There has been lots of great stuff written over the past few weeks related to carbon pricing in Canada; so I thought I would make a list. These are just the ones I recall off the top of my head (Now updated with a couple suggestions from twitter). Has there ever been a more exciting time to be an environmental economist in Canada?
