I've echoed 2 concerns written in other comments:>

I echo those that identified these 2 points:> 1) What can deter a corporate owner paying $1200.00 on behalf of their employees? They've got millions. 2)Is $1200 too high? (Keeping in mind parties need money, so lower amounts may not be realistic period.)

Hello Theresa, 

We agree!!! A lower per individual limit would be more accessible for everyone, however, during negotiation with the NDP government, $1200 per individual a year was the compromise made between the two parties.
