"We the undersigned feel enormous gratitude for the sacrifice made by all the Canadian Armed Forces through the ages in defence of this country and its values; acknowledge the very special nature of the sacrifice made by those who fought in the First World War in appalling conditions and with terrible loss of life; note that only three First World War veterans remain; and urge the Prime Minister that their sacrifice, and all of those they served with under arms from 1914-1918, be celebrated by offering a state funeral to the family of the last veteran of the First World War resident in Canada."

Dennis Hogan Kingsville ON It is about time we show some pride in our country and the people who sacrficed so much for us.
Robert Darryl Phaneuf Calgary AB I was informed of this petition via an interview on CBC Newsworld. I think it's an excellent idea to mark our history. The passing of the last Great War veteran will most certainly be one for the entire country and it needs to be marked.
