Canada: Minister of Natural Resources, Jonathan Wilkinson
Jonathan was born in 1965 in Ontario and is a political appointee. Prior to entering politics he spent 20 years in the private sector mainly with green technology companies from gas purification to biomass, he became CEO of BioteQ Environmental Technologies in 2011. Wilkinson is walking a tightrope as he tries balancing climate commitments, green technology investment with the need to keep Canadian oil and gas revenues high. He is unlikely to keep all parties happy in Canada.
