contribution limits

$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.

Official response from submitted

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.

    Look for nominee contributions from Corporations or Unions. This should be treated as fraud and punishable by a fine of $5,000, 6 months in jail or both.

    Ian, I earn a good living and contribute $125 month to the Green Party because I believe we need them in the legislature. It’s also an effective way to offset any carbon I create, in Mt opinion
