Ban Big Money

$1200 is a bit high. $1000 $2.50 subsidy is a bit rich and bad optics as we stand to benefit the most. $1.25 is more reasonable. This was the federal subsidy before it was eliminated.

Official response from submitted

Hello Rick, 

Thank you for your feedback. We agree $100 per individual a year is a more accessible limit, however, during negotiation with the NDP government, $1200 per individual a year was the compromise made between the two parties. 

Here is more on the consultation process from an article in the Globe and Mail: https://beta.theglobeandmail.com/news/british-columbia/horgans-fundraising-policy-reversal-tied-to-greens-insiders-say/article36338684/?ref=http://www.theglobeandmail.com&

Additionally, the "per-vote allowance" will start at $2.50, but will decrease every year for 4 years before being eliminated.
