The new Ban-Big-Money Bill is better than expected!

In addition to the ban-items, I particularly like the item the NDP credited as being "Green influence" : a five-year transition for public subsidies to BC political parties - $2.50 per vote received in most recent election (sliding down to $1.50 in the 2022 review year). This not only alleviates the transition out of the Big Money era, it also greatly levels the playing field. Seeing a subsidy reflect popular vote, is precisely what we all hope to see in actual voting with Pro-Rep. What the BC Greens can't do with 17% of party funding!!

Thank you for your feedback and support Wayne. Getting big money out of politics is a huge step for democracy in BC!
