$1200 is way too much. I do not know anyone who would donate $1200 to a political party. How about moving soon to $100 as in Quebec. Needs some careful safeguards so bosses can't send their employees off with a pocketful of cash to be donated to the required party.
Thank you for your feedback Ian. 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.
