Facebook has "archived" NO BC HST - which means wiping out the 125,000 plus members from what was BC's biggest Facebook protest group and second largest BC Facebook page overall - behind the Vancouver Canucks.
I created this group in July 2009 - before I helped form Fight HST with former Premier Bill Vander Zalm, ex-Unity Party leader Chris Delaney and other good folks, before the successful Citizens Initiative petition in 2010, before the winning binding provincial referendum in 2011.
At it's peak, it went viral - growing by 6,000 members every day, peaking at over 136,000!
And now, despite every effort to convince Facebook otherwise, the membership has been all but eliminated. As of writing there are 114 members.
I encourage you to re-join NO BC HST - if only to spite Facebook's corporate malevolence.
And beware - Facebook does not belong to you or us - it belongs to them.
Below is Fight HST's news release today about this:
