Let me share this fantastic post from my friend Bill Tielemans blog:

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 http://www.facebook.com/ 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.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! “
Congratulations Bill! This ‘Fight the HST’ movement has really gathered momentum,much in thanks to people like Bill who are working hard to get the word out! The dedication and volunteer time required to launch what promises to be one of the most historical actions is enormous,but the energy and commitment level is high in every corner of the province as people continue to sign up to help in any way they can. In fact, it seems the only disappointment is that we can’t start a recall immediately!!
