New Canadian FaceBook Group

The Bike Canucks form a unique FaceBook group which has been created exclusively for Canadian Bicycle enthusiasts.
Canadian residency is a requirement for membership.
We can be found at:https://www.facebook.com/groups/2165...?ref=bookmarks
The group is unique, in that to the best of my knowledge we are (one of few or)
the only FaceBook group dedicated to Canadian residents who are bicycling enthusiasts of all types including:
  • year 'round riders in the Canadian climate
  • car-free or car-lite
  • utility cyclists
  • collectors/builders
  • activists/advocates
  • e-bike friendly
  • or just "bike-centric"

Sorry for being off-topic but I couldn't help noticing in your first sentence you had written "are a " and in your second sentence "is a".

I know it's common English and others have tried to explain but in my opinion it's just plain wrong. The subjects of both sentences (subject, verb, predicate) are singular. So the verb should be third person singular too.

If this were a grammar forum, you would have just kicked off the grammar equivalent of a chain lube thread
