"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."

Willioam R, Fortune Oakville ON My Grandfather served in both WW1 and WW2...he lied about his age both times. They don't mint them like that any more and we should not only honour the last man as a symbol of those that died in the Great War, but also as a passing breed to contemplate.
Mary (Walls) Culham Calgary AB This would be a deserved acknowledgement and timely tribute to the courage and debt we owe to so many who came before us. My father, Wilson (Jack) C.J. Walls (1918 - 2005) was a WWII Flying Officer in the R.C.A.F. My brother, Jack Walls, was a Captain in the Army and served as a base Dentist in the 60's in overseas and at Cold Lake C.F.B. We will only have one chance to do something special f
