NO BC HST Facebook protest group now over 125,000 members! Thanks to all who have joined!

An amazing milestone was passed today - the NO BC HST Facebook protest group I created now has more than 125,000 members!

NO BC HST only went online at on July 25th of 2009 - and it now has about 30,000 more members than the Vancouver Canucks official Facebook page has fans - 95,000.

NO BC HST appears to be the largest BC-based Facebook page in the province.

Thanks to everyone who has joined, who has asked family, friends, co-workers and others to join and who has commented - the Wall posts alone currently total almost 6,000!

So let's keep up the fight against the unfair HST and make sure the BC Liberal government drops it.

To help with the BC Initiative campaign that could lead to a province-wide petition and vote, please go to Fight HST and sign up to be part of the most exciting grass-roots protest BC has ever seen!

too bad the intiative process wont occur until next year....spring time. the anger and willingness to gather and sign up 10% of voters in each riding will have diminished. unless of course the energy level is kept alive for 6 nonths.....will that happen? ... probably not...but i am hopeful!

The "initiative process" won't occur until "next year ... spring time"? Is that correct?

I hope so.

Could somebody please confirm the earliest possible dates and time-frame for recalling Gordo (if he's still around)?

The BC Initiative process can begin anytime but realistically there needs to be a lot of pre-organizing and undertaking a sign-up province-wide in the Christmas holiday season or during the Olympics would be extremely difficult.

I'm working with Bill Vander Zalm and many others of all political backgrounds to launch an Initiative in the spring of 2010.

As for Recall, Mary - the earliest anyone can launch recall campaigns on any MLA is 18 months after the last provincial election - that means mid-November of 2010.
