"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."

graham young halifax NS I am a veteran ,my father and fatherinlaw also.And with our troops in harm's way again.It is very important once again that we don't forget our past veteran's even though they only may be three left from the Great War.
Fred Garrett Saint John NB They were indeed great men and women who fought for what we as a country believed in. Their efforts made us a Nation of importance and if that doesn't deserve a State Funeral, then nothing does.

June Boon Nepean ON I think this is an excellent idea. Both my parents served in the armed forces during WWII so I understand the importance of honouring those veterans who gave so much. I feel that importance to remember every day when I enter the Perley Rideau Veterans Health Centre to visit my mother.

Warren Rowe Barrie ON Great Idea,whatever it takes,if some politician should be slow to jump on the bandwagon he should hope it is noted,I would not like to see the politicians use this great idea for their own gain. After all most should be tried for treason against Crown.Oh yes,I mean it

Keith & Tanya Martin Westbank BC I support all of our war heroes with personal conviction I fear what might have been the reality for Canada, if they had not fought for Canada and for so many gave their lives at a very young age. I hope that one of the results that emerge from this effort is that people are reminded what they have and what they need to protect in the future, and to achieve it without war. Keith Martin

Patrick Sherman Kamloops BC This could and should be the beginning of a focused effort to improve the education in our schools of the roll Canada played in both World Wars.
