"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."

David Dunlop Sidney BC My father was a career soldier that fought for our freedom in WWII. When I was in young lad he was posted to Europe and the family followed. Over a 3 year period we made many trips to Vimy and 40 odd years later I'm still in awe of what the men that fought and won the battle that defined a nation went through. A Vimy Ridge visit should be an pilgrimage that all Canadians should do at least once
