Top 25 Political Donations in BC from 2005-2011

Here is the list and I find it surprising that the top three donations in the seven years from January 1st 2005 to December 31st 2011 were all by one political party to another one.  Giving all this money to a competitor makes no sense at all.   The very fact that the Advocational Democratic Party has been primarily funded by another a political party is

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.
