"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."

bill campbell moncton, NB My Grandfather, Harry Stevens, fought at Vimy Ridge.When he returned home, he could no longer manage to run the family farm because of his war injuries.The rest of his life was spent as a janitor.My youth was filled with stories of life on "the farm". Both he and my Grandmother gave so much because of the war.We owe everything to the Vets. and their families. A State funeral is the least we can do
