I have no idea what happened - I have no word from Facebook authorities or anyone else - but I intend to find out.
Thank you sincerely for all the expressions of support and concern - it really means a lot to me.
The group Axe The BC Gas Tax, however, is still missing.
Meanwhile, it's time for a stiff drink!
UPDATE 2 January 31 : A supporter has re-registered the name NO BC HST as a Facebook group and offered to turn it over to me - but how can that have happened? I am determined to find out how a 130,000 plus member Facebook group can disappear without my knowledge or involvement.
UPDATE 1 January 30: Another large Facebook group I created in 2008 - Axe The BC Gas Tax - has also completely disappeared! I have again filed an inquiry with Facebook but this is looking more ominous indeed.
On Friday afternoon NO BC HST - the biggest Facebook group in British Columbia, with over 130,000 members - suddenly disappeared without a trace!
