"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."

Andre Alfred Spenard Penticton BC Having been lucky enough to have been too young and now too old to participate as a member of our arm forces except as a army cadet, I just want to thank the families of those that have given so much of themselves to make sure that all Canadians could have have a good life and remain safe in this Great Country of ours.

Terry Micks Chatham ON I believe it is the LEAST that we can do to honour the memory of these people, both those who survuved the Great War and those who didn't. A state funeral would be a great way to say THANKS
Gerry Bottrell Mississauga ON My uncle whom I was named after was with the Nova Scotia Highlanders. I believe they took Vinmy Ridge. He landed in France Jan 1917 was killed June 26 1917.
Audrey Speelman Coquitlam BC This is a great and worthy idea!

Maureen Wakefield Courtenay BC My Grandfather, whom I never met, was killed in France and is buried there. I cannot afford to visit his grave. It would be great for the family members of the "Final Soldier" to have the opportunity to do so.
