"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."

catherine dorotik toronto ON iwas raised in glasgow, scotland and lived thru the blitz of clydebank. I lost four uncles in WW11 and think this is a wondeful idea.

Ross Makey Selkirk ON
Gene Fuerth Windsor ON Offer a state funeral to the family of the last veteran of the First World War resident in Canada.
Mary Wass Hamilton ON I think this is a wonderful way to honor the men and women that fought to gain the freedom that we enjoy today. My Grandfather whom I never met gave his life in WWII.
Robert Ferguson Markham ON Wonderful Idea!!
Connie Sellen Pickering ON The State Funeral should not only be for the last remaining WWI veterans but to symbolically remember all of our veterans who gave so much for our freedom.
Roberta Dulong Cobden ON I hope you succeed. We don't do enough to honour our Vets. It saddens me to see each year there are fewer and fewer Veterans at Rememberance Day Services and even fewer observors.
Bill Allwright Paris ON
Larry Fraser Guelph ON
Steve Hall Mt Albert ON Thank you Granddad

Albert Curtis Falkland BC I think this is an excellent idea, and deserves to be enshrined in some sort of regulation or tradition. The last WW2, Korean, etc., vet should get a state funeral as a way of marking the passing of that generation, the closing of that chapter.
Ronald Gates Cold Lake AB I would absolutely support a State funeral for the last 1st World War Veteran that passes away. An important link to our heritage and history would be gone forever, and I think it's important that we as a nation take time and pause to remember the many sacrifices that were made by so many.
