The next thing that surprises me is that how many of the top 25 were donations to the NDP, 11 of them. Six of those being bequests.
Milan Ilich is the only individual to make the list.
I am aware this list only has single donations and not culmative contributions over a year, if I get the time I will make that list, but for the moment this is what I have.
