"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."

Angela Lovitt Victoria BC This is important.
 
Jane Masefield Tillsonburg ON I believe if there are only 3 left, perhaps all 3 should have this honour. One thing though, it should be in memory of all their comrades who went before them. They were fortunate to live to this time in life but the other veterans from that war were just as important. I'm sure their families would appreciate it.

Richard Kneller Hamilton ON Submitted on behalf of Corporal Horace John Kneller, regimental number 40001 CAMC-WW1
 
Richard Askey Mississauga ON The last WW1 Veteran deserves far more the State Funeral than some of those currently entitled by virtue of their time in Parliament. There were no shots being fired at the Parliamentarians as there were at the veterans. Do the right thing!
 
Alana Ross Etobicoke ON
 
Paul Cooke Aurora QC I am a staunch supporter of this idea but I don't think it should be left to the last individual standing. I firmly believe that each of these outstanding Canadians should have this honour bestowed upon them and let their families accept or decline. WE OWE IT TO THEM!!!!!
 
Jim Darbyshire Whitby ON This combined with more education is required.
