Improve the Charitable Contribution Tax Credit on the 1st $200

The first $200 of annual charitable contributions attract a provincial tax credit of only 5.05%. Contributions above the threshold attract a credit of 11.16%. The credit should be revised so that all donations receive the 11.16% credit. This will particularly benefit lower income small donors and will encourage help for many charities trying to help the most vulnerable in our society.
