"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."

Michael Prendergast Edmonton AB A State Funeral is necessary in order to acknowledge the sacrifice of the 66,000+ Canadians who died in WWI not to mention the tens of thousands who were physically and psychologically wounded. Veterans are more important than any politician any day!!! They gave us the freedom we have today!
